New York Yankees shortstop Anthony Volpe got his first career hit against the San Francisco Giants on Saturday.

Facing Alex Cobb, Volpe’s ball snuck under Brandon Crawford’s outstretched glove and into left field.

Volpe added his first stolen base shortly after, though DJ LeMahieu’s strikeout ended the inning. The Yankees lead 1-0 in the first inning.
