VIDEO: Mike Trout did it again
Angels superstar Mike Trout hit a walk-off homer against the Astros on Friday night, but that's just part of the story.

That's rather very ridiculous. As @SaberCoach notes, Trout's lower half is pretty much in standard rotational position when he hits one of these increasingly familiar homers.
