Nolasco (6-12) left the game for an undisclosed reason in the sixth inning with two outs and a 2-2 count on catcher Jose Lobaton.

As a result, Trout believes that he can relate to the former National League MVP while the Angels and Nationals are in the midst of a two-game series in our nation's capital. "Just keep it going".

Over the Angels' last five games, their bullpen has allowed only two earned runs and 17 1/3 innings, striking out 15 while walking one. His victory gave the Angels seven wins in eight games going into a series Friday in Baltimore against another team with wild-card aspirations. After a groundout by Daniel Murphy, Ryan Zimmerman slammed his 28th homer of the season.

It was the only damage Washington managed against Nolasco, who retired the first two hitters of the sixth before cramping in his calves led Scioscia to make a pitching change.

Tanner Roark (9-8) allowed four hits in seven innings for Washington, but he was done in by the two home runs. Angels rookie Keynan Middleton pitched a scoreless eighth.

Stats: Trout is hitting.340 (91 for 268) with 23 home runs, 55 RBIs and 58 runs scored in 76 games.

"That is what he does", Nolasco said of Zimmerman.

Nolasco gave up his major league-leading 31st homer of the season to Zimmerman, who singled in the eighth but was thrown out at third after Adam Lind reached on an error to stymie a threat.

"Turned out to be a pitcher's duel and we ended up on the bottom of that", Roark said.

Mid-fifth, the Nationals leads the Angels 2-1.

"Ricky battled", Angels manager Mike Scioscia said.

"Kole got ahold of a fastball and didn't miss it", Scioscia said. His legs cramped up on him in the heat, forcing him out of the game with two outs in the sixth. "It looked like he was a little uncomfortable out there".

NOTES: Washington OF Brian Goodwin (left groin strain) went on the disabled list Wednesday and the Nationals called up OF Alejandro de Aza from Triple-A Syracuse. However, Trout is not the only superstar to find himself on the sideline this season as Washington Nationals starting right fielder Bryce Harper is now on the club's 10-day disabled list with a hyper-extended knee. He improved to 3-2 with a 3.38 ERA in five interleague starts.

Angels: LHP Andrew Heaney (Tommy John surgery) will come off the disabled list and make his season debut Friday.

It was a game built on a dozen players each having one or two shining moments, without any one of which the Angels could have easily lost. He started Wednesday and was 0-for-4.
