Yankees’ Giancarlo Stanton just broke Astros’ scoreboard with running catch

Yankees slugger Giancarlo Stanton is playing the outfield for the first time since July. And after a rough start — he took a bad angle on a first-inning double by Houston’s Jeremy Pena — he is flashing the leather. And breaking things.

Stanton knocked out a panel on the Minute Maid Park manual scoreboard while robbing Yuli Gurriel of a fourth-inning double. The Astros and Yankees are tied at 1 in the fifth inning in Game 1 of the ALCS.
