Mike Trout trips on bases after mocking Jose Altuve for doing same
Mike Trout was trying to leg out a triple against the Houston Astros on Monday night, but he tripped around second base and ended up having to retreat. In a way, the Los Angeles Angels star got what he deserved.
Here’s the video:
Over the weekend, Astros infielder Jose Altuve literally fell 90 feet short of hitting for the cycle when he lost his balance rounding second on a would-be triple.
Jose Altuve needed a triple for the cycle, and it was in play!

At some point, Trout must have given Altuve a hard time about the play. You could tell by the way the two were laughing and joking with one another after Trout tripped that something was up. Altuve explained after his team’s 4-2 loss.
Altuve said Trout was making fun of him for wiping out at second the other night and then it happened to him. pic.twitter.com/4E0fLS7WZR

What goes around comes around, Mike.
