Mike Trout outdoes himself to rob Jesus Montero of home run (VIDEO)

It was starting to feel like highlight clips of Mike Trout had been relatively scarce over the past few weeks — emphasis on relatively. But just when you start thinking maybe the Angels centerfielder is merely mortal, he goes out and performs a feat to remind us that he is something more.

The 24-year-old already has more sensational catches in his four-year career than most respected veteran outfielders, but this incredible catch confirms that Trout is way more than your normal player.

With two men on base in the top of the fourth inning of Saturday's game against the Seattle Mariners, Trout scaled the Angel Stadium wall to rob Jesus Montero of a three-run homer. Not only did the four-time All-Star hang onto the wall to make the catch, but Trout also alertly got the ball back to the infield to keep the runners from advancing.

Throw in the fact that the Angels won a 3-2 game with Wild Card implications, and that's one timely catch even Trout will find hard to top.

So it's worth seeing again:
