Yankees center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury was robbed of extra bases by Red Sox rookie Mookie Betts on Friday night at Fenway Park. Tonight, it was Ezequiel Carrera’s turn.

Making his first start since his call-up late last week, Carrera saved Max Scherzer’s bacon this evening with this incredible over-the-shoulder diving catch with the bases loaded and nobody out in the third inning.

Talk about do-or-die. It doesn’t get much better than this.

LOS ANGELES — Jeff Samardjiza has been placed on the 10-day injured list by the San Francisco Giants due to right shoulder impingement.

Manager Gabe Kapler said before Saturday’s game against the Los Angeles Dodgers that the right-hander told trainers and the coaching staff that he felt like wasn’t able to get the arm loose during Friday’s game. Samardjiza is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Saturday.

Samardjiza went four-plus innings and allowed six runs on seven hits in a 7-2 loss to the Dodgers. He is 0-2 with a 9.88 ERA in three starts.

The Giants have recalled left-hander Andrew Suarez from their alternate training site, but Kapler said he hasn’t finalized a revised starting rotation.
