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.
