New York Yankees outfielder Clint Frazier saved a bug's life during Saturday's game against the Boston Red Sox and believes the good karma was returned later during an at-bat when he hit a home run.

Frazier used an outfield-alignment card to move a bug with a busted wing out of harm's way following a pick-off attempt in the fourth inning.

"He just looked like he was in pain and I was just trying to ease him to the side," Frazier said of the insect after the game, according to James Wagner of The New York Times. "I told (first base coach) Reggie (Willits), 'Don't step on him either.' Hopefully he abided by the rule."

An inning later, the 26-year-old slugged his eighth home run of the season in a 3-for-4 night at the plate.

Frazier has played well this season, posting a 1.017 OPS in 33 games for the Bronx Bombers.
