Mike Trout is playing out of his mind this season as he crushes the two-run homer giving the Angels a 5 point lead he currently has 6 homers this season tying the Nationals Bryce Harper. The impressive thing about Trout homer is that he got it off Junis a player who had not allowed a run in his first two starts but loses out on Trout.
