San Francisco Giants third baseman Pablo Sandoval and shortstop Brandon Crawford teamed up for a dramatic circus catch on a pop fly in foul territory during Tuesday night's MLB game at Minute Maid Park against the Houston Astros.
It happened in the bottom of the first inning as Astros batter Jason Castro hit a foul popup down the third base side. Sandoval overran the ball and fell down backwards while trying to catch it, but dove and managed to keep the ball from hitting the ground while knocking the ball back up in the air. The ball was just high enough for Crawford to make a diving catch.
