Welcome back to the Mike Trout home run daily, where we look back at every single home run of Mike Trout’s career, one game at a time. Today’s random number generator brings us to May 9, 2014, the first game of a three-game weekend series between the Angels and Blue Jays in Toronto.
Dustin McGowan started for the Blue Jays, and Trout led off the third inning with a solo home run to center field, breaking a 1-1 tie. Scroll to 1:38 of this video to watch:
This was the seventh home run of the season for Trout, and the 69th homer in his career.
He only faced McGowan one other time, and this home run is the only hit for Trout in four at-bats against him.
Trout in his career has 13 home runs in 58 games against the Blue Jays, hitting .315/.428/.584, pretty much right in line with his .305/.419/.581 career line against everyone. Fun fact about those Blue Jays homers: Trout hit exactly one home run against Toronto every year from 2013-18.
