Watch: Twins OF Aaron Hicks does best Willie Mays impression

Tuesday July 7th, 2015

Minnesota Twins centerfielder Aaron Hicks made an inning-ending, over-the-shoulder catch Monday against the Baltimore Orioles that would have made the "Say Hey Kid" proud.

With the Twins leading 2–1 in the top of the fourth inning thanks to a Hicks home run earlier in the game, Orioles' first baseman Chris Parmelee hit a long drive to centerfield. 

Hicks raced backward toward the wall to chase down the ball, but never turned around. Then this happened. 

Hicks is no stranger to great catches. The 25-year-old, in his third season with Minnesota, made this diving snag on Sunday against the Royals.

Thanks in part to Hicks' plays on both sides of the bat, the Twins hung on to win 4–2 over Baltimore. The win moved Minnesota to 44–39 and just four games back of division leader Kansas City.
