Bregman went 0-for-4 in a 2-1 Houston loss to New York

Alex Bregman flirted with heroics in his Major League debut, but he instead settled for a spot on SportsCenter’s Top 10 plays.
His second-inning stab of a chopped down the third base line and bullet throw across the diamond was good for No. 9 in the nightly countdown.
An error-free night at third base created energy in Minute Maid Park, despite the top prospect and former Tiger shortstop going 0-for-4 in a 2-1 Astros loss to the New York Yankees. He also started a 5-4-3 double play and assisted on five putouts from the hot corner.

Bregman struck out twice—once in the ninth inning against Yankees closer Andrew Miller with the tying run on base—but nearly brought the roof down with his bases-loaded drive to deep right field in the sixth inning of a 1-1 ball game. Alas, it fell about three feet short and was caught on the warning track.
The Astros and Yankees will continue their three-game series tonight in Houston. The billboard used as the main image above was put up in four locations around the city by LSU to commemorate the former All-American’s debut.
