ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Although Mike Trout has accomplished an extraordinary amount in his short major league career with the Los Angeles Angels, he claims none of those individual feats means much to him.

He's more interested in experiencing the thrill of a pennant race, and he's about to get it.

Trout and the Angels are surging into September with the best record in baseball at 83-53, culminating in a triumphant four-game sweep of the Oakland Athletics last weekend.

The Angels are erasing four years of expensive disappointments with a resilient pitching staff, a suddenly stellar bullpen and a lineup that doesn't rely solely on Trout or high-priced stars Albert Pujols and Josh Hamilton.

Angels manager Mike Scioscia has molded his roster into a cohesive team seeking a second World Series title.
