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.
