Remember on Saturday, when Jose Altuve failed to hit for the cycle against the Royals because he tripped around the second base bag? Angels outfielder Mike Trout must’ve felt bad for Altuve, so he did the same thing.

Trout was 1-for-2 with a solo homer when he stepped to the plate against Astros starter Collin McHugh. Trout dunked a 1-2 fastball down the right field line. Right fielder George Springer expected a high bounce, but the ball just died upon hitting the grass, so it skipped past Springer. It was an easy triple for Trout, but he stumbled coming around the second base bag, so he settled for two bases.

Trout commiserated with Altuve before the start of the next at-bat. Before the game, though, Trout teased Altuve about his base running gaffe, per MLB.com’s Alden Gonzalez. Trout said, “There’s some kind of karma involved there.”
