For the first time in his short career Mike Trout has hit his 40th home run in one season. The blast makes him only the second Angel to ever accomplish the feat in a season. The other was Troy Glaus. That’s something that neither Don Baylor nor Vlad Guerrero were able to do in their MVP seasons.
The two run shot came in the first inning against Houston’s Lance McCullers at Minute Maid Park.
