Must-see: LSU outfielder Jared Foster made an unbelievable catch last night

We don’t talk about college baseball all that often around here, but this is just too good to ignore.

OK, so here’s the scene. LSU came into the bottom of the ninth inning leading Texas A&M 4-0, but the Aggies rallied to tie the game before shortstop Blake Allemand hit a ball to left field which appeared destined to fall for a game-winner. However, Jared Foster robbed him by making an incredible leaping catch to send the game to extra innings. Look at the hang time on this one:

Just ridiculous. LSU went on to win the game 5-4 in 10 innings.

The Braves got a scare last night after first baseman Freddie Freeman was hit on the left wrist by a Hoby Milner fastball in the bottom of the eighth inning. It was doubly scary given that, less than a year ago, the same wrist was fractured when Aaron Loup plunked him last year, causing Freeman to miss over a month and a half.

Good news, though: the Braves just announced that Freeman’s X-rays are negative and that he’s day-to-day.

On the season, Freeman is batting .288/.468/.492 with two home runs, 12 RBI, and 12 runs scored in 79 plate appearances.
