Boston Red Sox reliever Ryan Brasier was backed up by some nifty plays in the field after taking over for opener Brian Johnson Sunday against the San Diego Padres.
That included an absolutely epic home run robbery by Gold Glove-winning center fielder Jackie Bradley Jr. Check this play out in all of its glory.
Notice how Bradley Jr. propped himself up by hanging on to the top of the wall before making the catch? Yeah, that’s some elite talent right there.
Bradley Jr. has been doing this for years now. Despite his light-hitting ways from the plate, he remains valuable to the struggling Red Sox because of an otherworldly defensive performance in center.
Padres youngster Luis Urias found this out first hand Sunday afternoon.
