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.

By the way, thanks to Buxton's catch the Twins escaped the eighth with the lead intact. They held on in the ninth for the 6-5 victory. Minnesota and Philadelphia will wrap up the series on Thursday afternoon.
