Show me a catch at Fenway Park that was better than that one. You can’t. I think Rich Hill sums it up perfectly right here. Oh shit, indeed.
Second base, center field, right field, doesn’t matter. Mookie Betts is one of the most physically gifted athletes in the game of baseball today, and we’re spoiled as hell for getting to witness highlight reel plays like this for years to come. But I can’t let this amazing catch take away from the real story, and that’s yet another amazing performance for Milton’s own Rich Hill. Tonight, we got yet another 10-strikeout game, and a complete game shutout. Dude went from playing American Legion ball not too long ago, to striking out 10 batters in each of his first three starts since making his return to the big league level. It’s crazy. But if you know his story, then you know that this couldn’t be happening to a more deserving guy.
PS – How about your boy Banks doubting Rich Hill? Rookie mistake.
