Royals-Angels Preview

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) Mike Trout asked Albert Pujols for advice on his playoff debut before the Los Angeles Angels stepped into the October spotlight, and the veteran slugger with two World Series rings had some simple guidance for baseball's best young player.

"He told me to just be myself, and not try to hit that home run when you don't need it," Trout said. "Just keep that same swing that got you here, and go from there. (But) it's definitely a bigger game, for sure. All eyes are on you."

Trout reaches the milestone he craves most Thursday night when he runs out to center field at the Big A for the Angels' AL Division Series opener against the Kansas City Royals, who must concoct a quick encore to their incredible 12-inning comeback victory in the wild-card game.
