Mike Trout starts Angels’ win with home run, ends game by robbing one (Videos)

Mike Trout book-ended the Angels’ 6-1 win over the Tigers on Saturday with two incredible plays that encapsulate his phenomenal all-around talent. The Angels rookie led off the bottom of the first with a solo home run off reigning AL Cy Young Award and MVP winner Justin Verlander, and he recorded the final out by robbing Prince Fielder of a home run in center field.

First, let’s watch Trout homer in his first career at-bat against Justin Verlander on a 1-1 pitch:

In case you’re keeping count at home, that’s not one, not two, not three, but four home runs he’s robbed this season.
