OMG Byron Buxton wows with game-saving catch


Minnesota Twins center fielder Byron Buxton came up with one of the biggest defensive plays of the season last night helping the Twins hold on to a one-run lead late against the Philadelphia Phillies.

With the Twins leading 6-5 in the eighth inning, and the tying and go-ahead runs on base, Buxton did this.
