JB Shuck’s incredible homer-saving catch

In the fourth inning of Friday night's Blue Jays-Angels game, Jose Bautista of the Blue Jays hit a ball deep to left field. Angels left fielder JB Shuck, not known for his glove, tracked the ball to the wall, leapt into the air, and made the catch, falling into the stands in the process. He held on to the ball and Bautista was called out, though Maicier Izturis was allowed to advance to second base on the play, later scoring on a single by Edwin Encarnacion.

The Angels would go on to win 7-5, and the extra run that Shuck's catch prevented ended up being huge for Anaheim.
