Alfonso Soriano Catch Robs Manny Machado Of Home Run (VIDEO)

Alfonso Soriano has hit 15 home runs since being traded to the New York Yankees back in July. On Thursday night, he took a home run away from the Orioles.

In the bottom of the eighth inning with the Yankees leading 5-2, Baltimore third baseman Manny Machado hit a high fly ball to deep left field. As it made its way down, Soriano ran over to the wall and made a leaping catch. Soriano kept Yankees reliever David Robertson in suspense for a few seconds before showing the ball.

Roberston's reaction was priceless.

"That's the first homer that I stole from somebody," Soriano said after New York's 6-5 win, via Bryan Hoch of MLB.com. "I'm very excited because it was a close game and a very important catch, and very important for me."
