Mike Trout hit a dramatic walk-off home run last night against the Boston Red Sox. The Angels had been limited to one hit in the shut out. Koji Uehara was down to the final out and the final strike to force extra innings when Mike Trout decided it was time to go home. It backed up a gritty pitching performance by CJ Wilson and was all the Angels needed for the victory.

I approached Kole Calhoun and all he did was shake his head. "He's a joke, dude. We needed a win. He did it. Period." Then he walked away.
