Play of the Day: Jake Marisnick slams into the Green Monster to make a catch

Astros outfielder Jake Marisnick made a terrific grab in left-center field on Sunday afternoon in an eventual loss to the Red Sox.

Ahead 3-1 with two outs in the bottom of the sixth, the Red Sox had runners on first and seoncd base for Brock Holt. Holt lined a Will Harris offering to left-center, seemingly destined to carom off of the Green Monster for at least a one-run double. Marisnick, in a full sprint, made the long trek from straightaway center field and snagged the ball before it could hit the wall, then crashed into the Green Monster. Marisnick, somehow, managed to hang onto the ball.

This is not the first time Marisnick has made a stellar defensive play in center field this season.
