Angels outfielder Mike Trout has turned home run robbery into an art form, and he put his artistry on full display on Saturday night against the Mariners. In the fourth inning, Jesus Montero hit what appeared to be a three-run home run off of Andrew Heaney, which would have put the Mariners further ahead at 5-1. But Trout paced back to the center field wall, just to the left of the 396 sign, before scaling it and reaching over to bring the home run back.

As ESPN Stats & Info notes on Twitter, Trout has robbed hitters of three home runs this year, leading the majors. He’s robbed eight home runs since 2012, which is two more than Carlos Gomez in second place.
