Braves_vs_marlins_12df
Diamondbacks third baseman Martin Prado flashed this web gem in the ninth inning of last night’s game against the Padres. With the score tied 9-9 and the bases loaded with two outs, Prado lays out and robs a sure base hit (if it stayed fair) that would have likely scored at least two runs for San Diego. Instead, the Padres headed back to the dugout with nothing and the Diamondbacks would go on to walk-off with the win. Take a bow, Martin Prado…take a bow. [SportsGrid] The post Martin Prado made an insanely impressive (and clutch) diving catch last night appeared first on The Nosebleeds.
