Kevin Pillar robbed Nick Senzel of a home run Saturday.

Recent San Francisco Giants’ acquisition Kevin Pillar continues to make highlight-reel catches in the outfield. Against the Cincinnati Reds Saturday, Pillar scaled the center-field wall and balanced himself atop it briefly to absolutely rob Nick Senzel of a home run:

Here’s another look:

That’s an amazing catch. And while there’s debate about Pillar’s overall value, especially at the plate (he’s hitting just .211/.238/.368 this year, well below even his modest .259/.295/.396 career line), he certainly makes some impressive plays in the field. And this one was certainly unfortunate for Senzel, the top Reds’ prospect who was called up recently; Pillar also robbed Senzel of his first MLB hit in his first MLB at-bat with a great diving catch Friday.

However, Senzel got his first hit later Friday, and he did in fact get his first home run later Saturday. Just not as soon as he might have hoped thanks to Pillar. But that may not be enough for the Giants, who were 14-18 on the season heading into this one and trailed the 13-19 Reds  5-1 when Pillar made this grab; they’re now behind 8-2 in the top of the seventh. But hey, they trailed 7-0 heading into the sixth Friday against Cincinnati and eventually won 12-11 in 11 innings, so it may not be over yet. At any rate, Pillar certainly gave them at least one good moment Saturday.
