mike troutLast season, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim outfielder Mike Trout took the major leagues by storm by putting together one of the best rookie seasons in history, and he appears to be picking up right where he left off.

Tuesday night Trout became the youngest player in AL history to hit for the cycle, completing the feat with a home run in his final at bat. Check out the highlights:

Trout, still just 21, finished the game by going 4-5 and tying his career-high with 5 rbi’s. The four-hit game raised Trout’s batting average to .293 with 9 home runs, 34 rbi’s and 9 stolen bases. Last year he finished second in the AL MVP voting and finished the season batting .326 with 30 home runs, 93 rbi’s, 129 runs scored, and 49 steals.

Yeah, it’s safe to say that the kid is pretty good.
