"Mike showed how he helps you win ballgames tonight," Angels manager Mike Scioscia said after his team's 4-3 walk-off win. "He did a great job in center field and hit a ball about 500 feet."
With two outs and none on in the top of the seventh, Trout raced deep into the right-center-field gap, dove full extension and took away extra bases from Mariners shortstop Chris Taylor, keeping the Angels ahead by one, at 3-2.
"Off the bat, it was tailing away, so it was tough," Trout said. "I figured if it was going to fall it was going to be a double, no matter what. Kole [Calhoun] was there to back me up, and I just ran out there and caught it."
According to Statcast™, the ball left Taylor's bat with an exit velocity of 94.7 mph. Trout made his first movement toward the ball in less than a half-second, traveling 86.6 feet to make the catch. Along the way he reached a top speed of 20.0 mph and had a route efficiency of 98.7.
Four innings earlier, Trout got a 1-2 pitch from Mariners starter Roenis Elias and sent it well into the lawn in straightaway center field, putting the Angels ahead, 3-0, and giving him a team-leading seven home runs on the season. The ball traveled 441 feet -- the longest the Angels have hit this season -- and had a batted-ball velocity of 107 mph, according to Statcast™.
"I think it was a fastball down the middle," Trout said. "Yeah, I got that one good."
