Right fielder Craig Gentry’s acrobatic second-inning, run-saving grab of a would-be homer by the Minnesota Twins’ Eddie Rosario earned the No. 1 spot Tuesday night on the program’s daily “Top Plays.”
“Off the bat, I was tracking it and it was kind of an instinctual thing,” Gentry said after the 3-2 win at Camden Yards. “Just ended up in the glove and it was a big moment in the game. I was definitely excited I was able to make the play and be a part of Opening Day.”
Not bad for someone whom the Orioles signed to a minor league deal not even two months ago.
