Mike Trout smacks two homers, drives in five

Mike Trout

A big night for the young Mike Trout last night.  He hit two homers and drove in five as the Angels destroyed the Mariners.

Perhaps it is less impressive given that the jacks came off Anthony Vasquez who, in his two major league starts, has given up twelve earned runs and four homers in nine and a third innings. But not that much less impressive. Trout just turned 20 three weeks ago, remember.

Since his recall on August 19th, Trout has four homers in 22 at bats and is hitting over .400. You have to wonder if, at some point, Mike Scioscia will start putting Trout in the lineup every day.

    I’m sure Scioscia is already looking for a way to trade Trout to the Cubs for Alfonso Soriano.
