Trout Belts 5 HRs in 5 Games Against Mariners to Make MLB History
Take a bow, Mike Trout! The Angels star popped five home runs in five games this weekend against the Mariners. The Angels won four out of five — all off the bat of Trout with go-ahead homers — to make him the first player in league history with four game-winning home runs in a single series. His five blasts rocketed him up the home-run list. He now has 21 total homers, which puts him alone in second behind the Yankees’ Aaron Judge (25). And after a big weekend following a historic slump, Trout and the Halos are inching closer to .500 (33-36).
