Odubel Herrera makes stumbling catch to finish Cole Hamels' no-hitter

With a 3-2 count at the bottom of the ninth inning and just one more strike to complete Cole Hamels' no-hitter, you'd think the Chicago Cubs would stop torturing fans and just give Hamels the strike, right? Wrong. they swung for the fences.

The ball almost reached the wall and it looked like centerfielder Odubel Herrera was about to break under the pressure and inadvertently spoil Hamels' no-no. But a spectacular clutch catch by Herrera secured the win and the no-hitter. Congrats Cole and Odubel. Now let's celebrate by admiring that catch over and over again.
