Watch (or not): Amazing catch robs Diamondbacks of home run

Posted at 8:55 PM, Aug 08, 2017

Yes, the Los Angeles Dodgers are having that kind of season.

In the sixth inning of the Dodgers' game vs. the host Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday, newly acquired D-backs slugger J.D. Martinez hit a shot to right field that looked like it was going to tie the game. But Dodgers right fielder Yasiel Puig had other ideas, and he preserved the Dodgers' 3-2 lead.

Credit where it's due (begrudgingly) to the best team in baseball. Fortunately, it didn't matter, as Jake Lamb hit a grand slam in the next inning to give the D-backs a lead they would not relinquish.
