The Cleveland Guardians stayed red-hot with a 7-5 victory over the Colorado Rockies on Wednesday night at Coors Field. After being 19-23, the Guardians have gone 12-4 to improve their record to 31-27, which places them 2.5 games back of the Minnesota Twins in the AL Central.

And Wednesday night’s win may not have happened without a ridiculous catch by left fielder Steven Kwan.

Cleveland led 6-5 with two outs in the bottom of the eighth, and Colorado had runners on first and third. The Rockies’ José Iglesias crushed a line drive to deep left field. It looked like a for-sure extra-base hit, and likely a go-ahead extra-base hit at that for the Rockies.

But Kwan ran a long way to make an incredible full-extension diving catch on the warning track.

Cleveland manager Terry Francona thought there was “zero chance” Kwan would make that catch.

With the Guardians winning 7-5, Kwan’s catch was essentially the difference. Kwan didn’t even enter the game until the fifth inning, but it’s certainly a good thing for Cleveland that he did.

That’s definitely one of the best catches we’ll see in the majors this season, and especially when you factor in that it saved the game. What a play by the impressive rookie outfielder.
