The football gods smiled down upon us as Giants receiver Odell Beckham, Jr. made a ridiculous, back-arching, one-handed catch for a touchdown at the start of the second quarter, giving his team a 13-3 lead, soon to be 14-3.

MLB players shared their amazement on Twitter.

I’m not sure, but I think it was kind of a good catch.

Josh Reddick will take their word for it.

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.
