July 25th: Josh Reddick is Spiderman.
This wasn't necessary at all. But still, it was pretty cool to see Josh Reddick climb the wall at Rogers Centre, hang there like Spiderman, and make the catch on this Travis Snider fly ball (that wasn't going to go over the fence anyway).
August 12th: Rajai Davis climbs the wall to rob a homer.
While Josh Reddick's Spiderman catch was impressive, it was really un-needed. When Rajai Davis scaled the wall at Rogers Centre a couple of weeks later, he actually *needed* to climb the fence to rob Casey McGahee of a homer.
August 28th: Brandon Crawford saves the bobble.
Relatively routine pop-up into foul ground up the left field line...Pablo Sandoval overruns the ball, knocks it up into the air, and Brandon Crawford lays out to snag it.
September 7th: Brett Jackson meets the wall.
Andrew McCutchen hits a laser to deep left center field that would bring in two runs, if only it weren't for Brett Jackson leaping into the wall with no regard for his well-being to make the grab. It's almost disturbing to see Jackson seemingly suspended against the wall for a split second before falling to the ground like a bag of rocks.
October 6th: Brandon Belt flips over the railing.
Giants first baseman Brandon Belt got on his horse to chase this Zach Cozart popup, tumbling over the railing and into the crowd while managing to hang on to the ball. Man, the Giants had some great defense this year.
