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."
