Thursday April 30th, 2015

Star outfielder Mike Trout made an impressive catch to help the Angels beat the Athletics in Oakland on Thursday.

The Angels led 6-2 entering the ninth inning, but Oakland scored three runs to draw within one. 

With two outs and the bases loaded, Athletics first baseman Ike Davis hit a fly ball to center field.

Trout ranged back and leapt near the warning track to snag the ball before hitting the wall. After completing the catch, Trout pumped his fist in celebration.
