Great grab by Gutierrez

Did you see the fabulous catch Franklin Gutierrez, just nine days removed from Dunn Tire Park, made in right field for the Indians on Saturday night in Cincinnati?

Click here for the video of Gutierrez's grab (MLB.com might make you wait through a commercial. Sorry.)

Consider the situation: Runners at first and second, two out in the bottom of the 10th in a 6-6 game. This was an all-or-nothing play that saw Gutierrez sacrifice his body and make a game-saving catch against the fence. Buoyed by the play, the Tribe won the game, 8-6, in the 11th.

Note how the batter, Alex Gonzalez, flips his bat away thinking he just lashed a walkoff hit and then look at the priceless disgust the camera catches as he rounds first after the ball is caught.
