There may not be an outfielder in baseball that makes more incredible plays than the Oakland Athletics’ Ramón Laureano (examples here, here, and here), and he added another play to the evergrowing highlight reel on Friday night against the Los Angeles Angels.

The A’s led 6-4 in the bottom of the seventh, when Angels superstar Anthony Rendon hit what appeared to be a game-tying two-run homer. Unfortunately for Rendon, Laureano was playing center field and robbed the would-be homer.

It’s too easy for Laureano.

Laureano is also a very good hitter with an .855 OPS on the season. He went 4-for-4 with a walk in this game, capped off with a solo dinger against Raisel Iglesias to extend Oakland’s lead to 7-4 in the top of the ninth.

Reaching base all five times, hitting a homer, *and* robbing a homer. That’s a heck of an all-around baseball performance from Laureano.

Oakland (27-19) came away with an 8-4 victory and is in first place in the AL West.
