Christian Yelich tips cap to Mike Trout after being robbed of home run
Christian Yelich had nothing else to do but tip his cap after being bested by his fellow MVP on Monday night.
Yelich drove a pitch from Los Angeles Angels starter Trevor Cahill deep to center to lead off the top of the third. Trout went back and robbed Yelich of a potential home run:

Yelich may have been bothered about losing an extra-base hit but had a sportsmanlike response:

That’s pretty much what is required to get Yelich out at this point. The reigning NL MVP is batting .361 with an outrageous .889 slugging percentage this season.
