It's not that Mike Trout has taken years off Torii Hunter's age – Hunter does that himself.

"I'm 37 years old – I mean, 27," Hunter has joked since his birthday last week.

That might be an exaggeration but the veteran outfielder is certainly playing like a younger version of himself this summer. Hunter's four hits (including his 100th home run as an Angel and 1,900th career hit), three runs scored and three driven in paced the offense Wednesday afternoon as the Angels beat the Kansas City Royals 11-6.
