It was quite a week for Chicago White Sox center fielder Adam Engel, who robbed Indians first baseman Yonder Alonso of a home run on Sunday.

Leaping over the wall was a familiar pose for Engel, who took two other home runs away in the last seven days. First came Monday, against Greg Bird of the Yankees.

Then on Tuesday, Engel again leaped over the wall to take a home run away from Yankees catcher Kyle Higashioka, a fifth-inning grab that at the time kept a no-hitter alive for Reynaldo Lopez.

Three different spectacular catches from Engel came in three different uniforms, on three different days. And after his fantastic Sunday grab Engel added some offense, too, with a home run in the eighth inning to cap a 3-for-4 day. Take a bow, Engel.
