Why do the Arizona Diamondbacks have the third-best record in baseball? Partly because of plays like these.
With a runner on second base and no outs in the second inning of the D-backs' game vs. the visiting Philadelphia Phillies on Sunday, left fielder Gregor Blanco made this incredible grab off a ball hit by Odubel Herrera to ensure the Phillies wouldn't strike first on the scoreboard.

Blanco's grab played a huge role in Sunday's game, as it helped the D-backs go on to beat the Phillies 2-1 in 11 innings thanks to this base hit by Daniel Descalso.
