Incredible catch robs Rusney Castillo of home run in Red Sox’s loss to Blue Jays

–MLB.com

Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Jose Bautista is best known for what he can do with a bat, but Rusney Castillo won’t likely be forgetting his glove work any time soon.

With the Red Sox hosting the Blue Jays at Fenway Park on Saturday afternoon, Bautista robbed Castillo of an apparent home run in the third inning. Castillo drove the pitch from Toronto starting pitcher R.A. Dickey to deep right field, but Baustita made a leaping grab at the wall.

The highlight-reel catch maintained the Blue Jays’ 3-0 lead in the third inning. Toronto added a fourth run in the top of the fourth frame, but Boston began its rally in the bottom half of the inning. The Red Sox plated three runs in the home fourth before David Ortiz tied the game, 4-4, with a solo home run in the sixth. The teams remained level into the 11th inning when Blue Jays catcher hit a game-winning home run.
