ANAHEIM – Game Recognized Game Early Monday Afternoon at Angel Stadium and
After Yelich did a highlight reel catch in the second inning, Trout robbed him with a jumping catch from the left, which made Yelich look like a homerun. Midfielder wall. Before Yelich climbed into the Drewout of the Brewers, Yelich drove his helmet with respect towards Trout.
The game loomed as a game changer as the teams played a tight 3-2 game until the end of the eighth inning
"Honestly, I thought it was a flyball to Center Field and it kept going," Yelich said. "I know what that is like outfielder. When I saw him tracking, I thought, "Ah, that's probably not good." And it was not good. But it was a great game.
"Take off your cap and try to steal one from him later in the series."
Trout said he believes the ball would at least hit the top of the wall for what would have been Yelich's sixth homer of the year, but that his job of trying to run home while batting pays off.
"It's just about getting back on the wall," Trout said. "You always get them in BP, obviously I got the wall at a good time."
The wall itself is part of the story at Angel Stadium. Its modest height, combined with an outfielder who once traveled in a generation like the Trout Patrol Center, makes robberies more routine in the home than in other parks. It was one of several deprived home-traded catches that Trout made in his career, including Prince Fielder and J.J. Hardy in 2012, Lonnie Chisenhall in 2014, Miguel Montero and Logan Morrison in 2015, Leonys Martin in 2016 and Mike Napoli in 2017.
"I hope it's routine," said Ausmus. "I saw him at work last year, I was here, and if you're going to get a very good athlete with an accessible wall, we'll certainly see a few more."
Craig Counsell, Brewers coach, said, "Me baseball should use fences at this height in every stadium, I think it's fun when outfielders can do it, it's an exciting game. "
It was only a few moments earlier that Yelich had shown his own defense With the Angels' first two battles aboard in the second inning, Yelich retreated 65 feet in 4.2 seconds to find a Jonathan-Lucroy line to the right midfield, which, according to Statcast, was suitable for a four-star catch Yelich dropped to the grass, but appeared in time to jump into the second base to double Albert Pujols.
Trout and Yelich meet at the Angel Stadium during the Brewers' third visit since moving to the NL in 1998, and the first time since 2010, the year before the debut of Trout's big league. Yelich visited the Marlins once in 2014, but said he and Trout were just casual acquaintances.
"I do not know him that well, but I follow him because he's a young star in this game," said Trout. "He's playing the game hard, I love the way he plays, he had an incredible season last year, and his entire career has been incredible, and if he knows this year's start, it's unbelievable that he's running."
Asked Whether he was disappointed or thrilled not to see Trelle more often, Yelich laughed.
"You do not want to play too much against him because he's such a good player," Yelich said. "It's definitely fun. They always want to compete against the best. You have registered for this. That's why you play the game. But you definitely do not want him to take it too much on your team.
Both entered the series to launch MVP calibers. Yelich, who had participated in some Angel Stadium matches as a kid, came up with a major league record in the first four games of the Brewers to start a season. Then he came to house # 5 and drove on Sunday in three runs to help win the series over the Cubs. In the meantime, Trout saw his goal in four consecutive games as he ended with two walks 0-2, extending his run to all eleven games this season. Trout, who hits .367 / .574 / .933 this year, dropped out of a game to tie the Angels' club record as Homer in five games set by Bobby Bonds from August 2 to 7, 1977.

For the record, Counsell pointed to a third defensive jewel as the Game of the Night. It was Angels shortstop
" [The Angels'] two big defenders made two big games, "said Counsell," and held at least two runs for us from the board. "
Make it a good start for Trout.
"He always has a good start," said Yelich.
"The easiest way to compare it is like what we saw from Yelich in the last two months [last season plus 2019]which is what Mike Trout has been doing for five years," Counsell said.
Asked the proverb, "Do not let Mike Trout beat you," Counsell said, "Yes, I think it's easy to make a statement: we'll get involved in it. There are times when we It's what each team says, and these guys still win MVPs, so they win MVPs because they're hard to come by, and they have little room for error to get them out. "
