Watch: Kevin Pillar robs Nick Senzel with ridiculous catch

Kevin Pillar catch

Kevin Pillar showed off his incredible glove with a spectacular catch on Saturday that robbed rookie Nick Senzel of a hit, and potentially his first career home run.

Senzel, who was playing in his second career game, belted a 3-2 pitch to deep center off Dereck Rodriguez in the bottom of the third inning of Saturday’s San Francisco Giants-Cincinnati Reds game. Pillar got back to the fence with enough time to climb the wall. He then held himself up to make the catch.

Here’s another angle:

Pillar was up so high that he had to adjust his glove downwards to make the catch, and it’s unclear whether the ball would have hit the wall or gone over the fence for a home run. Either way, it was a sensational grab.

This is the latest in a long line of spectacular catches by Pillar, many of which we’ve cataloged in the past.
