If Mike Trout Were In The National League ...

You want to see something nobody has seen before tonight? I mean, aside from Justin Verlander giving up nine runs in the first inning?

Watch this!

Stolen

That was Mike Trout, with R.A. Dickey on the mound, stealing second base in the sixth inning.

Yes, Mike Trout steals bases all the time. He's funny like that. But Dickey, you might be surprised to learn, hardly ever gives up stolen bases.

Hardly ever? Never. This season he'd pitched 120 innings without allowing a single stole base -- 0 SB, 2 CS.

Which is weird, because Dickey's a knuckleball pitcher. Just another one of the rules that don't apply to him, it seems.
