MLB on FOX live updates: Top plays from Yankees-Giants, Phillies-Rangers and more
The MLB on FOX makes its season debut on Saturday with a pair of enticing matchups.
In the Bronx, the Yankees host the Giants as Aaron Judge hopes to continue his magic against the team he nearly joined this past offseason. Judge continued his record home run hitting ways from last season on Opening Day, belting a homer in his first at-bat to give the Yankees a 5-0 win over the Giants.
In Arlington, the Rangers host the defending National League champion Phillies. Even though Jacob deGrom had a poor outing in his Rangers debut on Opening Day, Texas defeated Philadelphia 11-7 behind a nine-run fourth inning.
First pitch for both games is scheduled for 4:05 p.m. ET.
Of course, those are the only four MLB teams in action on Saturday. In fact, Saturdays begins the daily grind of the season for much of the league as every team is slated to play after most of the league had Friday off following Opening Day on Thursday.
Here are the top plays from Giants-Yankees and Phillies-Rangers along with other exciting plays around the league!
San Francisco Giants vs. New York Yankees
Jussssst a bit outside
It wasn’t a wild pitch thrown by Giants starting pitcher Alex Cobb that hurt San Francisco in the first inning. It was a wild throw that gave the Yankees the game’s first run. Cobb tried to turn two to end the inning, but his throw to second base ended up in center field, allowing Judge to score.
Very good, Volpe!
Highly-touted Yankees prospect Anthony Volpe recorded the first of many hits in his big league career on a grounder to left field in the second inning.
The Judge rules no hit
Judge decided he wanted to make an impressive play on the field on Saturday, robbing Thairo Estrada of a base hit in the third.
Giancarlo goes gone
Giancarlo Stanton hit his first homer of the season in the third inning, hitting a liner over the porch in right field to give the Yankees a 2-0 lead.
Philadelphia Phillies vs. Texas Rangers
Base running blunder turns to easy out
J.T. Realmuto took too wide of a turn when he rounded second base, and as the Rangers made a heads-up defensive play, the Phillies’ threat to score ended.
Semien sends it out
Marcus Semien hit a leadoff home run to give the Rangers a 1-0 lead.
Robbie Grossman made it a 2-0 game in the bottom of the first inning with his RBI single as the Rangers picked up where they left off on Opening Day
Bohm brings the big glove
Alec Bohm made an impressive diving grab at third to prevent the Rangers from getting things going in the second inning.
