Maybin had a career-high five hits, including a tying double in the 11th inning, and Albert Pujols singled home the winning run moments later to give Los Angeles a 7-6 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday night.
Hitting in front of Mike Trout is not a bad spot to hit,” Angels manager Mike Scioscia said.
Andrelton Simmons singled leading off the bottom half against closer David Robertson (2-1), and Ben Revere singled with one out before Maybin drove a double to left-center that tied it 6-all.
After an intentional walk to Trout loaded the bases, Pujols singled to deep center field for his third RBI of the night.
JC Ramirez pitched seven strong innings for the Angels, allowing two runs and five hits.
He allowed three runs and four hits on 15 pitches.
On one of his three scheduled bobblehead giveaway nights at Angel Stadium this season, Trout went 0 for 3 with three walks.
White Sox: RHP Miguel Gonzalez (3-3, 3.83 ERA) has allowed 14 earned runs in losing his last three starts.
He’s held Trout to a .158 average in 19 at-bats, but Trout’s three hits against him have all been home runs.
Angels: RHP Matt Shoemaker (2-2, 4.50) had his best start of the season with six scoreless innings in a victory against his hometown team, the Tigers, on Friday.
