Shane Victorino reached base just once in Wednesday night’s run-scoring bonanza at Fenway Park, but he made up for it by flashing some leather.
With two outs in the the top of the fourth — before the game devolved into a home run derby — Victorino went soaring into the seats along the first base line to retire Tigers leadoff man Austin Jackson and strand runners on the corners.
The right fielder didn’t just help out Red Sox starter Ryan Dempster, though. His acrobatic catch caused one fan to lose control of her cell phone, which Victorino picked up off the dirt and handed back to the very grateful spectator.
Check out the catch and the hand-off in the video below.
