The Diamondbacks went into Anaheim and beat the Angels 7-3 on Monday night, and they may not have done so without an incredible defensive play from center fielder Jarrod Dyson.

Arizona had a 6-2 lead with one out in the top of the seventh, when the Angels’ Justin Upton cranked a flyball to deep center field and Dyson made a leaping catch to rob him of a potential grand slam. It’s hard to tell if the ball would’ve cleared the wall or not, but either way it saved multiple additional runs from scoring:

And how about how easy Dyson made the throw look? Ridiculous.

Upton’s reaction summarizes the play:

The win improves the D-Backs’ lead over the Dodgers in the NL West to two games, while the Angels fall to 8.5 games behind the Mariners for the second AL Wild Card slot.
