No one can stop Los Angeles Angels superstar Mike Trout from hitting baseballs out of ballparks. 

In his seventh straight game, Trout has gone deep, homering in the top of the fifth inning against Cleveland Guardians pitcher Konnor Pilkington. He drove a low 94 mph fastball to dead center field, hitting the trees at Progressive Field. 

The home run tied the game at four apiece.

The MLB record for most home runs hit in consecutive games is eight, so Trout is on the cusp of making history if he can keep it going.
