What are the odds that Los Angeles Angels star Mike Trout would be able to hit a ball into a fan's "Trout Net"?

Apparently pretty good.

In the sixth inning of Sunday's game, Trout crushed a grand slam off Texas Rangers right-hander Spencer Patton. The ball landed in the first row above the right-center field wall, where a fan with a Trout Net was standing. The net was only two or three feet wide, and yet Trout managed to hit the ball into it. 

It's a pretty remarkable feat:

Trout's home run, his 31st of the season, gave the Angels an 8-2 lead.

The grand slam wasn't Trout's only blast of the game. The Angels center fielder got his big day started with a solo shot in the bottom of the first inning.

With that dinger, Trout (97 games) broke a 15-year-old record:

Angels @Angels

The legend continues to grow! @MikeTrout just hit a grand slam into the Trout Net...No seriously, into a net about 2 feet in diameter.

Angels @Angels

.@MikeTrout just became the fastest in #Angels history to reach the 30-homer plateau, passing the old mark held by Troy Glaus in 2000.
