Jackie Bradley Jr makes a diving catch of a roped line drive

ON THIS DATE (July 9, 2014) ... Jackie Bradley Jr. saved a run and took an extra base hit away from Tyler Flowers in the second inning. After Chicago took a 2-0 lead on a solo home run by Conor Gillaspie to lead off the second, Alejandro De Aza laced a one-out double to right, and appeared to be able to trot home easily when Tyler Flowers launched a bullet to the gap in right center that was falling fast.

Bradley got a great jump on the ball, sprinted to where it was headed, and made a last-second Superman leap to snare the catch and stun Flowers, who was sure he had an extra base hit.
