Another night, another spectacular catch from Jackie Bradley Jr.

With the Red Sox leading 4-2 at time in the eighth inning against the Orioles, Bradley Jr. robbed right-fielder Joey Rickard of an extra base hit with a leaping catch against the center field wall.

It was a great catch (see for yourself below), but afterwards Bradley Jr. didn't seem to think so.

"Nah, it's just an alright play," he said.

Bradley Jr. added: "Just ran back and got a feel for where I was on the wall and timed it up, made the catch."

Manager Alex Cora seemed to disagree.

“Yeah, I mean, he won the Gold Glove for a reason," he said. "He’s the best defensive center fielder in the big leagues."
