Daniel Nava ended Sunday’s game against Houston with a diving catch in right field to steal a hit from Robbie Grossman. It saved a run, too.
“It was just instincts” Nava said. “Just run after the ball and you’re hoping to get there.”
In the second inning, Nava made an over-the-shoulder catch of a ball Grossman hit to the warning track in right field. It ended the inning and left a runner stranded.
They were the kind of plays the Red Sox didn’t believe Nava was capable of making a few years ago. Nava was restricted to left field when he made his debut in 2010. The belief was he didn’t have the range or the arm to play right.
