Dexter Fowler lays out to make best catch of playoffs so far (VIDEO)

Chicago Cubs center fielder Dexter Fowler has great closing speed, which is one of the reasons the team is so great defensively.

He showed that in the top of the fourth inning of Saturday night’s NLCS Game 1, when he laid out to make a great catch across his body, robbing the Dodgers of their first potential extra-base-hit of the game.

Fowler also made a great catch in the third inning of the game. That’s why he’s a potential gold-glover.
