Mike Trout typically saves his huge performances and moments for weekend nights when you can stay up late and enjoy them with the comfort of knowing you don’t have to work the next day. Tonight, on a work night; he decided to abuse the Cleveland Indians’ pitching staff.
Lets have a look.
First home run, on a pitch down of course to right field:
Absolute bomb to left-center on a pitch, once again down in the zone:
He also doubled off the wall in the first inning, but we’ve become so accustomed to him hitting rockets that MLB.com does not list it as a highlight for the man. The Angels won the game big 9-3, and we’re proud to say we’re making the drive to Cleveland tomorrow to see Trout play live for the first time. This was the type of game that tempts a fan if you’re considering it – we’ve waited long enough to buy a ticket and see the kid from Millville.
Matt Shoemaker also added ten strikeouts in eight innings of work, he’s kind of sneaky good.
