This catch might not receive as much publicity as Roger Bernadina's fabulous one from earlier in the evening yesterday, but it was still just as good. In the ninth inning of a 10-2 game, Kendrys Morales of the Angels crushed a ball deep to center field. A's outfielder Coco Crisp immediately began tracking the ball, and at the last possible moment, made an effortless-looking leaping catch, pulling the ball from over the wall and taking a possible homer away from Morales.
Because the outcome of the game wasn't in question (the A's would win 10-4), this catch won't be thought of nearly as highly in comparison to Bernadina's...but it was still pretty damn good. Against the Angels, no less...Mike Trout, eat your heart out.
