Albert Pujols had a great game Monday night, hitting a pair of home runs and leading the Los Angeles Angels to their fifth straight win.
Mike Trout, however, had himself a homer as well and postgame interviews revolved around the 23-year-old. The Tampa Bay Rays intentionally walked Trout to get to Pujols in the bottom of the sixth, which ended up being a good decision since Pujols flew out.
Reporters decided to ask him about it after the game, and Pujols seemed annoyed stating, “This is not the Mike Trout show.”

Though Pujols went on to praise Trout, calling him “one of the best players in the game,” it’s easy to see why he’d be ticked off at the lack of attention he’s getting considering he has hit five homers in his last five games.
