Mike Trout never ceases to amaze.

The latest example came during Wednesday night's game against the Baltimore Orioles at Angel Stadium when the Los Angeles Angels superstar sent the 1-0 offering from O's right-hander Dylan Bundy into orbit:

Angels @Angels

We love you to the 🌕 and back @MikeTrout! https://t.co/nBDuhCs4Ay

No doubt about it from the second it left the bat. Just listening to the crack made it clear that it was long gone.

Trout's blast—his league-leading 11th of the season—may have "broke" Statcast, as Cut4 pointed out:

Guys, we think @MikeTrout broke @statcast. 👀 the distance. https://t.co/0Jw3UZLEBE

Add that to the rest of Trout's jaw-dropping resume.
