Red Sox rookie robs home run by nearly diving over the fence

New, comments

Andrew Benintendi is only a rookie, but this is definitely the best catch of his young career.

With his team leading 3-0 in the bottom of the eighth and their opponent attempting to claw back into the game, the Red Sox youngster almost left the field to bring back a sure home run which would have pulled the Rays within one. Instead, the score remained 3-0, and once the Red Sox tacked on three more in the ninth it was all but over.
