With two outs in the bottom of the ninth, Mookie Betts made an absolutely amazing defensive play to save the game. The catch cemented a 2-0 win and a series victory against the cross town rival Padres. Watch:
Statcast says Betts had just a ’10 percent’ chance at this ball, and honestly, no one else makes this play. Something should also be said for laying out and coming through at a time like that.
It is mid-April, so it’s not like this was playoff baseball, but you can clearly see how much the game means to him as soon as Betts realized he caught it. It was an epic defensive effort from the $365 million man, and somehow the Dodgers are still winning without their normal MVP centerfielder Cody Bellinger.
Maybe the Dodgers are just too good?
