While Jackie Bradley Jr. is finally looking like he’s getting some confidence at the plate, the side that has shown to be major-league ready for years was on full display Wednesday night against the White Sox.

After Chicago took a 2-0 lead on a solo home run by Conor Gillaspie to lead off the second, Alejandro De Aza laced a one-out double to right, and appeared to be able to trot home easily when Tyler Flowers launched a bullet to the gap in right center that was falling fast.

Bradley has proven time and time again this season how incredible his outfield range is, and Wednesday was no different, as he got a great jump on the ball, sprinted to where it was headed, and made a last-second Superman leap to snare the catch and stun Flowers, who was sure he had an extra base hit.

De Aza was able to move up to third after tagging from second, but was unable to advance any further as Adam Eaton flew out to right to end the inning.
