Video: Marlon Byrd’s catch helped preserve that no-hitter

A bit lost in the shuffle of yesterday’s no-hitter by the Phillies is that it wouldn’t have happened if it wasn’t for a really sweet catch by Marlon Byrd in the third inning. A catch that not only saved the no-no, but prevented a couple of runs from scoring too. Watch:

Byrd is not known for his defense at this point of his career, but that was a nice grab there. Especially given how much trouble Hamels was working through in the first couple of innings.
