John Sterling Had a Little Trouble Calling Alfonso Soriano's Home Run-Robbing Catch

Alfonso Soriano made this great leaping catch at the wall to rob Manny Machado of a home run in the eighth inning Thursday night in Baltimore. Although the Orioles wound up scoring three runs to tie the game, the Yankees won, 6-5, largely due to a wild pitch in the ninth inning.

Venerable Yankees broadcaster John Sterling had a little trouble tracking what exactly happened, initially calling it a home run. He quickly recovered in his usual bombastic fashion.

“Leaping … and she’s gone! It is a home run (pause) NO HE CAUGHT THE BALL HOWDOYALIKE THAT!”

In fairness, MASN’s Gary Thorne also went with a “It isssss gonnnneecaught!” in his call of the play.
