Today’s daily Mike Trout home run remembrance is an interleague play matchup with the Braves and, to date, Trout’s only career trip to Atlanta.
Trout singled and stole second in the fourth against Gavin Floyd, then homered against him in the sixth, the first of back-to-back shots with Albert Pujols. The home run starts at 3:20 here:
Those home runs gave the Angels a 3-0 lead, expanded to 4-0 when Trout walked with the bases loaded in the seventh inning against Anthony Varvaro. The Angels led 5-1 entering the ninth, but saw that lead evaporate thanks to five straight singles against Ernesto Frieri in the ninth inning.
Both teams scored a run in the 10th inning, then the Angels erupted for five runs in the 13th against David Hale, the key hit a two-run double by Trout, giving the Angels an 11-6 win.
Trout in his series in Atlanta was 7-for-14 with two home runs, two doubles, five RBI, four runs scored, two walks, and a stolen base. The original 2020 schedule had the Angels headed back to Atlanta from July 3-5, so maybe if baseball restarts again Trout can improve on those numbers against the Braves.
