Here are your Top 5 Plays of the Day!
5. Eugenio Suarez (Cincinnati Reds)
That was a pretty deep slide into second base but Suarez made that play look so easy! Brandon Phillips also showed some solid defense last night. The Reds' keystone combination were just on a roll last night defensively. The Reds crushed the Cardinals 11-0.
4. Wilmer Flores (New York Mets)
What a dive from Flores! That catch helped the Mets' starting pitcher Bartolo Colon extend his consecutive scoreless innings. Unfortunately, the streak stopped at 31 but the Mets beat the Braves 7-2 and Colon collected his 14th win of the season.
3. Martin Maldonado (Milwaukee Brewers)
I don't know what's up with the Pirates when they meet the Brewers and what was Cervelli doing? He isn't even that fast! Anyways, great throw by Maldonado and the Brewers beat the Pirates 6-4. The Pirates have now lost seven consecutive games against the Brewers.
2. Yangervis Solarte (San Diego Padres)
I was a bit surprised when I heard the Yankees traded Solarte to the Padres. He's been doing pretty well with the Padres considering the fact he made his Major League debut last year. But yes...I love these barehand catches by third basemen. Despite Solarte's barehand and cannon to first, the Padres fell to the Rockies 4-3.
1. Charlie Blackmon (Colorado Rockies)
The number one play of the day today and another one from the Rockies - Padres matchup. Charlie Blackmon simply snagged that homer from Brett Wallace who came in to pinch hit in the bottom of the ninth. What a clutch performance by Blackmon and this catch I feel like was the deciding factor in the Rockies' victory over the Padres!
