Video: Watch Jordan Zimmermann’s reaction to Steven Souza, Jr.’s no-hitter-saving catch

10 Comments

Nationals starter Jordan Zimmermann tossed a no-hitter against the Marlins to finish out the regular season, thanks in large part to Steven Souza, Jr.’s terrific diving catch in left field of a Christian Yelich fly ball to record the final out.

MLB Network happened to¬†capture a cool shot of Zimmermann reacting to Souza’s catch with their Ballpark Cam. You can see him walking dejectedly off of the mound, expecting the ball to fall in for a hit — likely a double, with Yelich running — but is happily surprised when Souza snags the baseball.

To quote my colleague Drew Silva, baseball is just the best.
