Mike Trout was incredibly proud of his 98 mph throw to home plate.
Mike Trout is on an absurd tear at the plate in which he has belted 11 home runs in his last 13 games, but he proved on Tuesday night that he is capable of changing the game on defense, too. There was one play in particular that helped the Los Angeles Angels preserve an early lead, and Trout seemed quite proud of it. With the Angels leading the Los Angeles Dodgers 1-0 in the bottom of the second inning, Corey Seager lined a base hit to center field and Max Muncy tried to score from second base.
