Mike Trout exited the Los Angeles Angels' 6-5 loss in extras to the Boston Red Sox due to left groin tightness on Tuesday.

The three-time American League MVP winced running between bases after hitting a double from Garrett Whitlock in the third inning.

Trout got to second base but eventually opted to come out of the game following a discussion with Angels trainers.

The injury blow comes after the Angels sacked manager Joe Maddon on Tuesday.

Trout had been re-discovering some form after enduring a career-worst none-for-26 drought amid the Angels' struggles.

The 30-year-old center-fielder had ended his slump with a single on Monday, before a two-run homer in the first inning on Tuesday.

Trout is batting .284 with an equal AL third-high 14 home runs this season.
