ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- Mike Trout hit his first home run of the season and Josh Hamilton also connected, leading C.J. Wilson and the Los Angeles Angels over the Houston Astros 4-1 Sunday.

Trout put the Angels ahead for good with his solo homer in the third inning. He also doubled and scored three times.

Hamilton tripled and singled before hitting his second homer of the year, a two-run drive in the eighth.

Wilson (1-0) allowed one run and five hits in six innings. He struck out three and walked four.

The left-hander held the Astros to a pair of singles after giving up back-to-back doubles by Ronny Cedeno and Matt Dominguez with none out in the second.
