During Sunday's game against the New York Mets, it's safe to say that the Los Angeles Angels were feeling it early.

With one out in the bottom of the first inning against Mets pitcher Bartolo Colon, Mike Trout got things rolling with a solo shot to tie things up.

Right after that, Albert Pujols hit his third homer of the season, as he's been looking like his old self to start the year.

And if that wasn't enough, Raul Ibanez made sure to add another round-tripper, giving the Angels back-to-back-to-back homers in the first inning.

That's a heck of a way to start a game. 

It was just the start of Colon's miserable day. He allowed nine runs, including four home runs, in his five innings of work.
