May 28, 2000 at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City the Anaheim Angels beat the Kansas City Royals 8-4. Brian Cooper pitched 8 innings, giving up 3 runs (1 earned) while striking out 4 to earn the win. The Angels would score 6 runs in the top of the 5th inning when Darin Erstad would hit a 3 run home run, and after an Adam Kennedy out, Mo Vaughn, Tim Salmon and Garret Anderson would all hit consecutive home runs. The 4 home runs in an inning are an Angel game record. In 2000, Erstad would have career highs in hits (240), Angel season season record; batting average (.355), Angel single season record; runs (121), second all-time for an Angel; home runs (25); RBI's (100) and would set an Angels single season record with 366 total bases. Darin would be the first player in major league history to have 100 RBI's from the lead-off spot that year. The Angels as a team in 2000 would set single season records in home runs (236); RBI's (837); total bases (2659) and extra base hits (579). 2000 was also the year Troy Glaus would set the single season marks for an Angel in home runs (47) and slugging percent (.604)..
