Mike Trout powered the Angels to a 7-6 comeback victory over the Astros last night with a walk-off solo homer in the bottom of the ninth inning. Check out his heroics below:

That pitch was what, maybe a foot above the ground? Just look at where the catcher was set up. But Trout is one of the best low-ball hitters in the game for a reason. Perhaps it’s time word gets out about that.
This was the second walk-off homer of Trout’s career. Both have been this season. He’s now up to 20 home runs and 63 RBI on the year to go along with a fantastic .313/.406/.616 batting line. His 1.022 OPS leads the American League. Hey, remember when he was “struggling” earlier this season? Yeah, me neither.
