San Diego Padres outfielder Justin Upton just came up with a catch of the year candidate as he robbed Andrew McCutchen of a home run.
It’s funny how fate repays you sometimes.
One moment you’re a hero after saving a crew-member of the home stadium from being engulfed by a tarp, and the next thing you know your moon-shot of a hit provides somebody else a chance to play role of superman.
During the Pirates game between the San Diego Padres on Tuesday night, the nasty elements forced a rain delay. This is where McCutchen and friends came up huge.
Once one of the crew-members got stuck in the tarp. McCutchen and teammate Sean Rodriguez helped save the day.
Then, after play resumed, McCutchen hit a deep bomb with a man on base in the bottom of the fifth-inning.
This is where Padres outfielder Justin Upton swooped in to make a potential catch of the year highlight, robbing the Pirates star of a clear home run (above video).
