With a hitter's count in the bottom of the 13th, Mark Trumbo got the changeup he was looking for and deposited it over the left-field wall, giving the Angels a 4-3 walk-off win over the Tigers.

With that, an Angels team that had lost 10 of its first 14 games got back on track with a weekend sweep over the reigning American League champs.

"It's pretty well-chronicled that we've been struggling a little bit early on," Trumbo said. "But three wins against a team of this caliber, it's an excellent sign."

With all the attention given to Mike Trout, Albert Pujols and Josh Hamilton, Trumbo has quietly gotten off to a fast start. Trumbo has a hit in 15 of the Angels' 17 games and has reached base in all of them. On Sunday, his only hit came on a 3-1 changeup that Phil Coke left out over the plate.

"It was the right pitch," said Coke, who has allowed four hits to Trumbo in four at-bats against him. "It was just two balls too high and found the barrel. If he's out there guessing, he guessed right. My hat's off to him, because he swung at the right speed and hit it a long way."

C.J. Wilson flirted with disaster to start the game, but kept the Tigers contained through six innings and the bullpen pitched seven scoreless to finish the team's first sweep of 2013.

"It's a heck of a club over there," said Angels manager Mike Scioscia, whose team is now 7-10. "Today, you can't say enough about what our pitching staff and our bullpen did to keep us in the game and match those guys pitch for pitch. [They] worked around some trouble, and in the end got a big hit."

Wilson admittedly didn't have his best stuff, but the left-hander battled to keep his team in the game, giving up three runs on five hits and four walks.

"The one thing I liked with C.J. today is the first inning he got out [of a jam], and in the second, he minimized damage," Scioscia said.
