DETROIT -- Earlier this week, Mike Trout had a chance to meet Al Kaline, the Hall of Famer who played for the Detroit Tigers and won a batting title in 1955 when he was 20 years old. After another four-hit night, Trout looks like hes on his way to a similar feat. Trout raised his American League-leading average to .355 on Tuesday night with the fourth four-hit game of his spectacular rookie season. His 430-foot shot in the second inning was the second of five Los Angeles homers, and the Angels went on to rout the Tigers 13-0. Trout, who turns 21 next month, said he met Kaline on Monday. "My mom lived in Michigan. She was a big fan of him growing up," Trout said. "That was pretty neat meeting him." Trout, Mark Trumbo and Albert Pujols all homered off Jacob Turner in the first two innings, and Alberto Callaspo and Kendrys Morales went deep later in the game. The Tigers were shut out for the first time in 159 games, a franchise-record streak that began last July 17 -- exactly a year earlier to the day. Garrett Richards (3-1) allowed three hits in seven innings, easily outdueling Turner (0-1) in a matchup of top pitching prospects. The Detroit right-hander lasted only two innings, giving up seven runs and six hits on a 100-degree night. "Jacob is a potential top-of-the-rotation guy who just needs more seasoning," Detroit manager Jim Leyland said. "I still expect to see him high in a rotation someday, but hes not ready yet." The Angels lead the major leagues with 14 shutouts. Pujols opened the scoring with an RBI single in the first, and Trumbo followed with his 26th homer of the year, a three-run shot. Trouts two-run homer in the second was the most impressive -- an opposite-field drive to right-centre that made it 6-0. "It felt good off the bat," Trout said. "I was running pretty hard, because its a big park." Pujols added a solo shot in the second. Trout now has 100 hits this season in 69 games. He entered the day with a 20-point lead over Joe Mauer in the AL batting race. Pujols and Howard Kendrick had three hits each. Trumbo has six homers in his last eight games. Detroit needed to send Turner to the mound because of an injury to fellow rookie Drew Smyly. Leyland talked a bit before the game about the challenges young pitchers face when they have to learn on the job at the major league level. The 21-year-old Turner was recalled from the minors before the game to make his fifth career start, and he was in trouble from the beginning in a game that began amid triple-digit heat. Trumbos homer went an estimated 415 feet to left. Trouts was even longer, landing in the outfield seats and bouncing up onto a concourse above Sparky Andersons retired No. 11. Trumbo playfully disputed the estimated distances of the homers, which put Trouts farther than his by 15 feet. "That didnt go farther," he said. "Conspiracy. League-wide conspiracy. Youve got to hit it to the middle of the field, Im convinced now." Pujols homer was the 461st of his career, tying Chipper Jones for 33rd on the career list. The Angels put their leadoff man on in each of the first six innings. Morales drove in another run in the sixth with a single, and Callaspos three-run homer later that inning made it 11-0. In the bottom half, Detroits Miguel Cabrera hit a line drive to right, but Torii Hunter made a diving catch. Richards, who is three years older than Turner, walked four but pitched comfortably with a big lead. Morales hit a solo homer in the eighth, and Peter Bourjos hit an RBI double in the ninth.

For Jets head coach Claude Noel and a number of players the thought was it was a point lost because after a very good start to the game, they could not maintain it for a full 60 minutes. EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- One trip into the end zone wasnt enough for Plaxico Burress. Neither was two. One touchdown catch after another, Burress had the big breakout game he and the New York Jets have been expecting. The veteran wide receiver tied a career high by catching three TD passes, including the go-ahead score that was set up by another interception by Darrelle Revis, and the Jets stormed back in the second half to defeat the San Diego Chargers 27-21 on Sunday. "Every morning you wake up on Sundays and you want to be great," said Burress, who has been slow to develop a rapport with quarterback Mark Sanchez. "I had to let the game come to me. I think Ive been forcing it. But this was them saying, Hes been working hard, well stick with it. "The fans pay money to come see you do well, and I felt for the past few weeks I was not playing well. This is gratifying." Leading 21-17, the Chargers appeared to be driving for a possible game-sealing score when Philip Rivers threw to Vincent Jackson and the ball tipped off the receivers hands and right to Revis, who returned the interception 64 yards to the Chargers 19. "It was a big play," said Revis, who thought cornerback Antonio Cromartie also got a piece of the ball. Revis had two interceptions on Monday night, including a 100-yard touchdown return, in the Jets 24-6 win against the Miami Dolphins. After a few runs by Shonn Greene and a defensive holding penalty -- the Chargers 11th penalty in the game -- Sanchez found Burress on a slant for a 3-yard touchdown to give the Jets (4-3) the lead for the first time with 8:41 remaining. It was Burress second three-TD catch game of his career, and first since 2007 while with the Giants. "Youve got to evaluate yourself," Burress said. "I looked at myself and said Ive got to play better. It was not on anybody but myself." San Diego turned it over again on its next possession when the Chargers (4-2) faced a third-and-6 from their 41 and Kyle Wilson picked off Rivers for the first interception of his career. Nick Folks 30-yard field goal with 1:36 left made it 27-21. San Diego had one last shot for a winning drive, but couldnt really threaten against New Yorks defence. "Its our fault," Chargers tight end Randy McMichael said. "You can ask any question you want to ask. The San Diego Chargers beat the San Diego Chargers. Nothing to do with the New York Jets. Its embarrassing." With the win, the Jets headed into their bye-week break with two straight wins -- both at home -- after a three-game road losing streak. They also are off to their first 4-0 start at home since 2004. "I feel like were hitting our stride right now," coach Rex Ryan said. "We saw our team, the one we kind of envisioned at the start of the season. We were slow to get it going, but we saw it." Sanchez finished 18 of 33 for 173 yards, three touchdowns and an interception. Burress finished with four catches for 25 yards, but he provided the red-zone presence the Jets hoped hed be when they signed him as a free agent after he served 20 months in prison on a gun charge. "He had three TDs," Ryan said with a grin. "Not badd.dddddddddddd" Greene had a season-high 112 yards on 20 carries. LaDainian Tomlinson, facing his former team for the first time since signing with the Jets last off-season, became the fourth running back in NFL history with 600 catches before leaving in the fourth quarter with the flu. He finished with 14 yards rushing and three catches for 37 yards. "I woke up this morning feeling pretty bad," he said, "but was able to push through as long as I could." The game had some added spice when Ryan created a coast-to-coast stir when he said he wouldve won a few Super Bowl rings if he had been hired as the Chargers coach in 2007. That job went to Norv Turner, who shot back at Ryan asking if Ryan had those rings stored with the ones he has guaranteed with the Jets. The two shook hands after the game and had a brief but cordial conversation. "Before the game, I thought I could get him inside, work the body," Ryan joked. "Obviously, my chin is not so good. Again, it was unintentional and unfortunate. I have so much respect for Norv." The Chargers jumped out to an early lead and would have been up by a bunch if not for their mistakes. San Diego, coming off its bye, was called for a whopping 13 penalties. "The bottom line is we came out playing really well," said Rivers, who was 16 of 32 for 179 yards and a touchdown -- and the two costly interceptions. "We just didnt finish off the game. If we played the second half like we played the first, it would have been a two-touchdown victory." Mike Tolbert gave San Diego a 21-10 lead with 1:16 remaining in the first half on a 1-yard touchdown run. New York had an impressive drive on its second possession of the second half, capping a 10-play drive on Burress 4-yard touchdown catch that made it 21-17 with 2:57 left in the third quarter. "We put our defence in a hole early, it felt like," Sanchez said. "We almost spotted them 14 points." Donald Butler gave the Chargers an early 7-0 lead when he ripped the ball out of the hands of New York tight end Dustin Keller and scored on a 37-yard fumble recovery. New York appeared to take a 10-7 lead late in the first quarter on a 23-yard touchdown catch by Santonio Holmes, but the score was negated by a holding penalty on centre Nick Mangold. Two plays later, Eric Weddle picked off a pass that set up Antonio Gates 2-yard touchdown catch with 12:11 left in the first half. Gates, who missed three games with a flare-up of plantar fasciitis in his right foot, finished with five catches for 54 yards. The Jets came right back as Burress caught a 3-yard touchdown pass with 7:18 left in the opening half to make it 14-10. The Jets were helped by four Chargers penalties -- two pass interference calls and two offsides -- on the drive. "This," Revis said, "was a must-win for us." Notes: Tomlinson joined Larry Centers (827), Marshall Faulk (767) and Keith Byars (610) as running backs with 600 or more receptions. ... Jets DT Kenrick Ellis left with an ankle injury in the opening quarter and didnt return. ... Chargers LT Marcus McNeill sat out most of the second half with an undisclosed injury. ' ' '
