Watch: Blue Jays’ Kevin Pillar soars through the air to make grab

Saturday May 7th, 2016

Blue Jays centerfielder Kevin Pillar made another spectacular grab on Saturday afternoon against the Dodgers in a 6–2 loss.

With the Jays down 5–2 in the top of the ninth, Pillar ranged back to his right to track down a Carl Crawford fly ball and dove through the air, fully extended, to haul in the catch. A run scored on the play, but the play prevented additional damage.

Last month, Pillar crashed into the wall after robbing a Rays hitter of extra bases, and last year, he leapt through the air and made a similar grab to the one he made on Saturday.

Pillar finished 1-for-4 at the dish with an RBI and two strikeouts.
