Sweet grabs by Robinson & Heyward

There were two sweet defensive plays to end games on Monday
night.

The spectacular home run saving catch, followed by a quick
juggling act, was made by Cincinnati’s Derrick Robinson. The Reds
center fielder pulled back Jeff Francoeur’s drive for the final out
to secure Bronson Arroyo’s shutout in an 11-0 rout of the host San
Francisco Giants.

In New York, Atlanta’s Jason Heyward didn’t rob anyone of a
homer — but the 2012 Gold Glove winner came up with a much
bigger play for the final out of the Braves’ 2-1 victory.

With two outs and runners on first and second, New York’s Justin
Turner hit the ball towards the left-center field gap into a
driving rain. Positioned in right-center, Heyward raced across the
spacious Citi Field outfield and made a diving catch to seal the
victory — and likely avoid a Mets’ walk-off celebration.

By the way, Heyward was only making his fifth career start in
center.
