This is why you love the game of baseball


This really is why we watch and why we love baseball.

Mike Trout provided us with what go down as the signature moment of the 2014 season. It was definitely the signature moment of the season thus far. Trout had an absolutely un-human at-bat against Chris Sale, working a full count. He then hits a change-up out of the park for a grand slam that tied the game. This moment will live on in Angels-lore for quite some time.

The Angels would of course go on to win the game 6-5 (you don’t lose a game after your team does something like this), scoring all six runs in the bottom of the eighth inning.

And tonight, I’m glad I didn’t go to sleep on Mike Trout.
