The Los Angeles Angels held on for an exciting 4-3 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays Friday night at the Rogers Centre. Not surprisingly, superstar outfielder Mike Trout was firmly in the mix as the Angels got a quality win on the road.
Using his usual beautifully compact swing, Trout sent a lazy offspeed pitch over the wall in center field to give his team the early lead.
It might not be possible for me to watch a highlight of a Trout hit and not gush about how clean and compact his swing is. To have that direct a path to the ball, to have such a compact swing, and still generate so much power is darn impressive. It looks like Trout flicks his wrists and hits a baseball farther than most of us could ever dream of.
In conclusion, Mike Trout is good at baseball.
