WASHINGTON -- Angels center fielder Mike Trout is generally considered the best baseball player in the world. He hasn't yet gotten to show as much on a national stage due to the Angels being 0-3 in playoff games in his career, but man, does he ever show off in the All-Star Games.
Trout homered to give the AL a 2-0 lead in the top of the third inning on Tuesday.
Here's an interesting nugget:
Two-time All-Star MVP @MikeTrout now has two career ASG homers (also 2015), becoming first Angel ever to go deep twice in All-Star play. Only other Angels with ASG HR include Vlad Guerrero (2006), Garret Anderson (2003), Fred Lynn (1983) & Leon Wagner (1962).— MLB Communications (@MLB_PR) July 18, 2018
More interesting is just how much Trout absolutely owns the NL in the All-Star Game.
Now through 17 career All-Star Game appearances, Trout is hitting .467/.566/1.133 with two doubles, a triple, two home runs, four RBI and a stolen base. He's already won two All-Star Game MVPs.
Mike Trout, people. He's The Man.
