The Athletics came back to beat the White Sox 4-2 this afternoon on the strength of a go-ahead three-run homer from Billy Butler in the top of the ninth inning. However, it almost didn’t happen.

Watch as right fielder Avisail Garcia makes an excellent leaping grab before losing the ball upon impact with the fence…

Brutal stuff for the White Sox. Butler should at least write Garcia a thank you note or something. It’s the polite thing to do.
