Giants combine for craziest catch of the year (Video)
Giants infielders Pablo Sandoval and Brandon Crawford combined to make one of the craziest catches of the year, though it was Crawford’s amazing reflexes that made it possible. Astros catcher Jason Castro fouled a ball down the left field line during Tuesday’s game and Sandoval, who was playing third, seemed to have it. Sandoval lost control of the ball as he went to the ground, and he flipped it in the air unintentionally. Crawford alertly dove for it and made an awesome grab to end the first.
Crawford also made a sweet over-the-shoulder basket catch later in the game just so you would know that wasn’t a fluke. The second-year player isn’t doing much at the plate, but he’s holding his own at shortstop for the Giants.
