Ezequiel Carrera makes sensational catch in first start for Tigers
I wrote before that the Tigers were taking a risk — albeit calculated — in center field, going with a platoon of Rajai Davis and Ezequiel Carrera in center field. [You can read it here.]
In his first start with the Tigers on Monday, Carrera may have assuaged some of those doubts, with a spectacular diving catch with the bases loaded in the bottom of the third inning. Derek Jeter, who was on first at the time, mouthed "Wow" after the catch, which saved at least two runs. It still went in the books as a sacrifice fly for Jacoby Ellsbury.

Scherzer's wife, Erica, was impressed, too.
Did that just happen?! Yep, Max owes Carrera the best dinner NYC has to offer! #speechless
