Top Play: Gregor Blanco’s amazing diving catch

Aug 2, 2012

Gregor Blanco is making a habit of making amazing diving catches to bail out pitcher Matt Cain. Blanco, a four-year veterans from Valera, Venezuela, followed up his perfect game saving grab with another diving catch on Wednesday night.

His latest web gem occurred with two out and a man on second base in the fourth inning of a 2-0 game against the visiting Mets. Jordany Valdespin lined a drive to the left-field gap, in what appeared to be an RBI double. Blanco raced down the drive and made a full extension dive to secure the grab. Although the play did not have the same significance as his perfect game saving play in May, one could argue that this diving catch was even more impressive.
