The Los Angeles Angels are happy to have Mike Trout back after the birth of his son. Both he and the ageless Albert Pujols teed off on Seattle Mariners starting pitcher Justin Dunn in the first inning Tuesday night.

First Trout absolutely hammered a solo shot to center field.

Then, with a man on, Pujols crushed a moon-shot home run to left field — his third of the season.

Dunn didn’t know what hit him. Before he knew it, it was 3-0 Angels, thanks to these absolutely crushed balls from Trout and Pujols.
