Top GIFs: Trout with a trip, not a triple

Top GIFs: Trout with a trip, not a triple

Here are the Top 5 GIFs from Monday's games, courtesy of @MLBgifs:

1. What a strange trip

They may be different in stature, but Mike Trout and Jose Altuve are of like mind when it comes to that feeling of tripping on your way to a triple.

2. Like a bowling pin

The Giants' Ramiro Pena is knocked over by the speed of this line drive -- but not enough to drop the ball, of course.

3. Had it all along

A's pitcher Daniel Mengden can pretend he had a plan for this comebacker, but sometimes you just get lucky.

4. Ball, bat, bird

This unassuming bird needed every ounce of spin rate on an Adam Wainwright curveball -- and a lot of luck -- to get out of this jam in Kansas City.

5. Bryant HR reel

There were a lot of craned necks in Cincinnati on Monday night as the Cubs' Kris Bryant became the first player in modern baseball history (dating back to 1913) to hit three home runs and two doubles in one game.
