BALTIMORE -- Cedric Mullins, whose Players' Weekend name is The Entertainer, provided a thrill when he leaped above the center-field wall and took a home run away from the Yankees' Giancarlo Stanton in the sixth inning of Saturday's 10-3 loss in the first game of a day/night doubleheader at Oriole Park.
Stanton's next home run will be the 300th of his Major League career.

Mullins, whose Major League debut came on Aug. 10, was immediately installed in center field, moving veteran Adam Jones to right. He's led off for the past eight games.
While Mullins' catch was entertaining, the Orioles still trailed, 8-2, heading into the bottom half of the sixth.
