Mike Trout celebrated his 25th birthday by robbing another home run. Trout, who’s made a name for himself in the realm of outfield acrobatics, made a spectacular catch against the Mariners on Sunday.

Seattle’s Leonys Martin hit a deep fly with the bases loaded. But instead of a grand slam, Trout chased the ball to the warning track, waited a second, leaped and pulled the ball back in from over the wall.

Trout’s timing was perfect. Though Seattle still scored one run off the hit, a sacrifice fly is a lot better than a home run. The catch didn’t help save the day, though; the Mariners won the game 3-1.

Now if the Angels can find some pitching to go with Trout and slugger Albert Pujols, they could be contenders. The team currently has a 4.46 ERA, which ranks 24th out of the MLB’s 30 teams.
