SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Angels star Mike Trout flinched after yet another high-and-tight fastball from San Francisco reliever Shaun Anderson, prompting a warning from the plate umpire in the Giants’ 10-5 win over Los Angeles.

Two days earlier in Anaheim, Trout was upset when Anderson twice threw near his head in the ninth inning. 

This time, the three-time AL MVP turned his head after a heater sailed up and in. 

Angels manager Joe Maddon loudly cursed and complained before emerging from the dugout to continue. 

A few people in the Giants barked back and plate ump Lance Barrett warned the teams. 

Once play resumed, Trout tripled off the fence in left field.
