Mike Tauchman's Catch Robbing Pujols Homer
The SF Giants 'Catch of the Year' (5-28-2021)
(By Kerry Crowley, Mercury News, May 30, 2021)
Tauchman's Sensational Catch
SF Giants lost three games
to Dodgers in Los Angeles,
tumbling to third place from
first place in the NL West.
Can they compete with World Series
champs Dodgers and the first place
San Diego Padres who had a 9-game
winning streak? Doubts are raging.
In the 4th game at Dodger Stadium,
Giants tied Dodgers 2-2 through
7 innings, when Buster Posey hits
3-run homer in the 8th for 5-2 lead.
Listening to the game on radio,
thought Giants had the game won,
when Barnes hits a 3-run homer in
9th to tie it 5-5 real heartbreaker!
Then Albert Pujols' blast looks like
a walk-off homer, but Tauchman
leaps with glove over the wall
and makes a sensational catch!
The Giants rally in the 10th
off closer ace Kenley Jansen
to beat the Dodgers 8-5 for
their best win of the year.
