MLB Top Plays of the Day (09/21/15)
Here are your Top 5 Plays of the Day! 5. Asdrubal Cabrera (Tampa Bay Rays) Big Papi lines one to second but is caught by Asdrubal Cabrera! Pedroia was already running towards third and Cabrera wasn't going to let him off the hook just yet. He races to second base and makes it into a double play. The leaping catch alone was great, but him beating Pedroia to the bag made the play so much better. Despite the unassisted double play, the Rays fall to the Red Sox 8-7. 4. Aaron Hill (Arizona Diamondbacks) It was a ground ball hit by Crawford but Aaron Hill dived for it and managed to stop it. He stayed down on the ball and even though he didn't catch it perfectly, he picked up the ball on his knees and threw it in time to get Crawford out at first and end the inning. The Diamondbacks beat the Dodgers 8-4. 3. Kole Calhoun (Los Angeles Angels) Another beautiful assist from the outfield. It was a base hit all right but what was the third base coach thinking when he waved in Altuve? I mean Altuve's pretty fast all right, but you don't want to underestimate Kole Calhoun's arm. Calhoun guns down Altuve from right field and it was right on the money. The Angels however fall to the Astros, 6-3. 2. Kris Bryant (Chicago Cubs) And our stud from Chicago makes it in the Top 5 Plays of the Day. (Oh, just in case you haven't checked out my "Cubs Star Kris Bryant Surprises Fans" card, you def should!) Anyways, this was one of the strangest plays ever. The wild pitch bounces off the screen and goes all the way to third and Bryant caught it. Scooter Gennett thinks he can advance all the way to first but Bryant's not going to let him have it and dives to third to get him out. The Brewers challenged the play, but nope, Bryant definitely got him out. The Cubs beat the Brewers 9-5. 1. David Price (Toronto Blue Jays) Our number one play of the day comes from David Price! The ball was lined right to the mound, but somehow David Price managed to catch the ball! It was going right towards his face and I don't even know how Price reacted to that. One thing's for sure. I am so glad he caught that. If he hadn't....well, I don't even want to think about it. The Blue Jays come on top of the Yankees 4-2 with an exceptional pitching performance by none other than David Price. Now that was your Top 5 Plays of the Day from last night's games!

MLB Top Plays of the Day (09/14/15)
Here are your Top 5 Plays of the Day! 5. Mariners Fan (Seattle Mariners) We finally get one from the crowd! He was under it, he reached out, and made the play. The bow was a must. Good thing he brought his glove to the game! The Mariners crushed the Angels 10-1. 4. Jedd Gyorko (San Diego Padres) Jedd Gyorko spins and makes the play to make a 1-2-3 inning for James Shields! A strong outing from Shields and an explosive Padres offense leads them to victory over the Diamondbacks, 10-3. Shields also collects his 12th win of the season. 3. Christian Yelich (Miami Marlins) Yelich makes the catch and throws a cannon to second to get Juan Lagares out at second. The 2014 Gold Glover gets another 2014 Gold Glover out with his incredible arm. Too bad the Marlins faced the hottest team in the MLB right now; the Marlins lost 4-3 to the Mets. 2. Bryce Harper (Washington Nationals) The number one candidate for the NL MVP award saves the game with runners on first and second. The ball was going in fair territory but Harper reaches out, slides and makes the catch! Harper's catch leads Washington to victory as they top the Phillies 8-7 in extras. 1. Mikie Mahtook (Tampa Bay Rays) Mahtook jumps up and makes the catch, but it doesn't stop there. Mahtook comes down and throws one to second to get Gardner out and make it into a double play. This amazing play also extended Erasmo Ramirez's no-hitter through the seventh inning (He lost the no-hitter in the top of the eighth). The Yankees topped the Rays 4-1 with a three-run homer from Slade Heathcott. Now that was your Top 5 Plays of the Day from last night's games!

MLB Top Plays of the Day (10/01/15)
Here are your Top 5 Plays of the Day! 5. Adam Warren (New York Yankees) Clayton Kershaw is not the only one who can make the behind-the-back catches! Adam Warren made this amazing play and led the Yankees to clinch a spot in the postseason. They beat their archrival, the Boston Red Sox 4-1 and earned their spot in the American League Wild Card spot. Congrats Yankees fans! 4. Mike Trout (Los Angeles Angels) Well, he wasn't going to let Kole Calhoun be the only player to make the list. He is one of the most fearless baseball players in the league. He'll do anything it takes to lead his team to victory and that is exactly what he did last night. He was going back fearlessly and caught that ball despite running into the wall, full-speed. Even though he did not get the runner on second, he saved a potential RBI double. The Angels fell to the Rangers 5-3. 3. Yadiel Rivera (Milwaukee Brewers) It was a grounder in the hole, but Yadiel Rivera caught the ball back hand perfectly. It didn't stop there. He threw a laser beam and it was delivered perfectly two the first baseman to get the out. The Brewers however fell to the Padres 3-1. 2. Josh Hamilton (Texas Rangers) Josh Hamilton has been through a lot but there is no doubt that he is one of the most talented ballplayers out there. He proved that once again against the Angels when Victorino sent one way back to left field. He went backwards, slid, and caught that ball right in front of the fence! The runner on third scored, but Hamilton's catch was just unbelievable. The Rangers beat the Angels 5-3 and dropped their magic number to one for the AL West division title. 1. Kevin Kiermaier (Tampa Bay Rays) Kevin Kiermaier makes the number one play of the day once again! Ichiro gets a base hit, but we know Kiermaier has one of the best arms in the league. He threw one down perfectly to home and stopped a potential tying run. That was his 15th assist of the season. The Rays beat the Marlins 4-1. Now that was your Top 5 Plays of the Day from last night's games!

MLB Top Plays of the Day (09/30/15)
Here are your Top 5 Plays of the Day! 5. Jason Heyward (St. Louis Cardinals) It was a fly ball to deep right field. The ball was hit pretty hard so Jason Heyward did not have a chance to see and "feel" where the fence was. Well, he wasn't definitely scared of the fence, but he did hesitate a bit. Nonetheless, the Cardinals' right fielder leaped and made the catch against the fence. The Cardinals crushed the Pirates 11-1 and not only won their 100th game this season, they also clinched the NL Central division title! Congrats Cardinals fans! 4. Kole Calhoun (Los Angeles Angels) Mike Trout is not the only outfielder that the Angels have and Kole Calhoun was going to let people know it for sure before the season was over. The ball was hit deep right in between Trout and Calhoun. Calhoun had a quick start to the ball, dived for it to rob a potential double from Vogt. The Angels however lost to the A's 8-7. 3. Carlos Gomez (Houston Astros) This one's for @jeff4122! It is the bottom of the ninth with the tying runner at first. Franklin Gutiérrez hit one strongly to center field, but Carlos Gomez was positioned himself perfectly to catch the ball. He wasn't satisfied though. He saw pinch runner James Jones and threw a laser beam to first. And the result? Gomez made a perfect double play to end the game and lead the Astros to a 7-6 victory over the Mariners. 2. Starlin Castro (Chicago Cubs) Starlin Castro makes the list again. We have seen some incredible plays from him all season long and he proved himself once again with this amazing play, where he dived, and threw a perfect ball to first on his knees to get the out. The Cubs hung on for the race for home advantage in the NL Wild Card game as they crushed the Cincinnati Reds, 10-3. 1. Kevin Kiermaier (Tampa Bay Rays) And finally, our top play of the day comes from Kevin Kiermaier of the Tampa Bay Rays! Dietrich shot one deep to center field for a potential double...or even a triple! But Kiermaier followed the ball and never took his eyes off of it. He turned around, timed his jump perfectly, and caught the ball. He also ran into the fence after he made the catch, but whatever. He made it to the top of the list! The Rays beat the Marlins 6-4 in this one. Now that was your Top 5 Plays of the Day from last night's games!
