SEATTLE -- Mike Trout can dunk a basketball, and sometimes, as he did on Friday night at Safeco Field, he proves it on a baseball field.
Former Angels and current Mariners designated hitter Kendrys Morales hit a long line drive to center field to lead off the eighth inning of Seattle's 4-3 win. Trout drifted to his left, watched the ball tail to his right, leaped high into the air, reached to the other side of his body and somehow hauled in the catch.
Morales looked stunned as he jogged back to the dugout.
Manager Mike Scioscia said it "looked like a video game."
"He hit it pretty well," Trout said. "The only chance I had was to jump, and I just put my glove up and caught it."
