There are robberies, then there's what Jackie Bradley Jr. did to Trey Mancini on Wednesday night.
With the Baltimore Orioles and Boston Red Sox knotted at 1-1 in the bottom of the 11th inning, Mancini smashed a drive to left center. It was on a path to clear the fence by a good 3 or 4 feet, which would've given the Orioles a walk-off victory. But JBJ decided he wanted to keep playing:

Bradley Jr. channeled his inner-Spider-man for what very well could end up being the catch of the MLB season. Yet after the game, he made it sound like it was a can of corn.
"I just went back, tracked it and got a good jump on it," the 2018 Gold Glove award winner told MassLive.com after the game. "Timed up my footsteps the way I wanted to. I got up there and executed it."
The Red Sox homered in the next half-inning and went on to win 2-1.
