The Riley Greene era is off to a *flying* start.

After the rookie turned the heads of Tigers fans with an impressive 2-for-3 Major League debut – and two walks to boot – Greene had racked up seven hits in six games entering Saturday, with his early batting average sitting at .350.

And while he went 0-for-5 at Arizona on Saturday night, Greene turned even more heads with his defense. And this time his reach went far beyond Detroit fans.

In the sixth inning of the 6-3 win, Greene took flight, looking like Superman, and snagged a ball off the bat of Buddy Kennedy, grabbing himself the top spot in SportsCenter’s Top 10 Plays.

While it’s been a struggle to get excited about the Tigers this season, Greene’s arrival has definitely been a bit of a shot in the arm for Detroit fans.

Greene and the Tigers finish up a three-game set in the desert on Sunday, looking for their first series sweep away from home since last August.
