Josh Donaldson makes stunning catch while diving into stands

Wednesday June 24th, 2015

Toronto Blue Jays third baseman Josh Donaldson made an incredible diving catch to help preserve Marco Estrada's perfect game bid in the eighth inning of Wednesday's game against the Tampa Bay Rays

Estrada was perfect through seven innings and facing David DeJesus to start the eighth when DeJesus hit a high fly ball into foul territory along the third-base line. 

Donaldson leapt and dove into the second row to make the catch, keeping the perfect game intact. 

Estrada gave up a hit to the next batter, though, when Logan Forsythe narrowly beat out a weak ground ball to Donaldson. 

Estrada got plenty of help from his defense in his quest for history. ​Jose Bautista made a similarly impressive catch to end the seventh inning.
