There's a first time for everything. Or in this case, a first time for two things.
As the American League Championship Series presented by Camping World continued during the Yankees' 8-1 win over the Astros on Monday, Yanks shortstop Didi Gregorius had a couple firsts of the season occur.
During the bottom of the first inning, on the first pitch of his at-bat, Gregorius bunted for a hit for the first time this season. Then, with Gary Sanchez batting, Charlie Morton picked him off at first base -- again, a first for him this season.

In the next inning, however, the Yankees made up for the baserunning blunder. Todd Frazier hit a three-run homer to put the team up, 3-0, and New York added five more in the fourth.
