The Yankees lost the ALCS Game 1 to the Houston Astros. However, the team with the highest playoff experience has the power to punch a hole in the Astros’ score. Giancarlo Stanton showcased this on Wednesday. He not only made a difference in left field but also caught a running catch that led him to break the scoreboard at Minute Made Park.

Giancarlo Stanton caught Yuriel Gurriel’s fly ball while running, and then his hand broke a part of the scoreboard during the fourth inning of Wednesday night’s ALCS Game 1 between the Yankees and the Astros at Houston’s Minute Maid Park.

Giancarlo Stanton already has four putouts and he has only made one bad play in left field so far. Jeremy Pea hit a double to left-center field in the first inning, but it looked like he took the wrong path. It was a tough play, but a left fielder who was better at defense might have been able to run it down.

Giancarlo Stanton, who also doubled in the game, has done well in his first game back in the outfield since July 21, when he hurt his Achilles and foot.

Oswaldo Cabrera, a rookie who also started three ALDS games on the left was not included in the playoff lineup for the first time. Aaron Hicks had started ALDS Games 4 and 5 in that position, but he hurt his knee in the Yankees’ Game 5 win over Cleveland on Tuesday. He collided with Cabrera while both were running after a catch and Hicks’ season is over.

Have you ever seen such an act of breaking the scoreboard? When and where?
