Laynce Nix Brings a Home Run Back Over the Wall, Robbing Drew Stubbs

May 1, 2013, 8:43 PM EDT

Laynce Nix has been one of the best pinch hitters in baseball in 2013 for the Philadelphia Phillies, leading all of MLB with 7 pinch hits, but his action in the field has been limited. He made just his 12th start in the outfield this evening in Cleveland and was given a chance to flash his leather. Nix made a rather impressive grab in the bottom of the 4th inning off the bat of Drew Stubbs, robbing the Indians outfielder of a home run.

That’s some solid hops right there. And he timed it perfectly. Maybe John Mayberry Jr. can take some notes.
