When C.J. Cron stepped to the plate against the Oakland Athletics on Tuesday he had more than just an Angels win at stake.

The first baseman was promised season tickets to watch his hometown Phoenix Suns by teammate Mike Trout if he could hit two home runs in the contest, which he managed to achieve when he took Athletics starter Chris Smith deep in the first inning and right-hander Michael Brady yard in the eighth.

"I’ll try to get them on the floor or something," Cron told Pedro Moura of the Los Angeles Times. "I think I just won a couple thousand bucks there. And I’ll be going to all the games. Pretty cool."

The bet was made after the two teammates discussed Cron not homering in 11 days.

Originally, Trout had offered tickets to see the Arizona Coyotes, but Cron countered with Suns tickets.

Cron now has 12 home runs for the Angels, who sit one game back of an American League wild-card spot.
