Mike Trout Hits For Cycle

Mike Trout even surprised himself in adding to his growing list of impressive big league achievements.

Trout hit for the cycle and drove in five runs.

Trout, last season’s AL rookie of the year and MVP runner-up, became the youngest AL player to hit for the cycle and third youngest in the major leagues since 1930. He’s also the sixth player in Angels history to complete the cycle and the first to do it since Chone Figgins on Sept. 16, 2006, at Texas.

“It was one of those nights,” Trout said. “I didn’t really think about it until about the eighth inning. And when I got on deck, I started feeling it a little bit. To be honest, I thought Josh was going to hit for the cycle after his those first two at-bats. I wasn’t thinking about myself.”
