Byron Buxton made a spectacular play on Friday night at Target Field. With runners at 1st and 2nd and two out in the top of the third inning, Byron Buxton took away a home run from Nelson Cruz.

Buxton is one of the fastest players in the game. In the month of September, Buxton has enjoyed the best offensive stretches of his career. The former No. 1 prospect was hitting .300 with 7 home runs entering play on Friday.

Buxton has also enjoyed playing at Target Field too as the 22-year-old has slugged 6 of his 8 home runs on home turf.
