Tigers outfielder Nick Castellanos thought he had just hit his second home run of the afternoon in the top of the ninth inning on Sunday afternoon, but Blue Jays center fielder Kevin Pillar had other ideas. Preston Guilmet threw an 0-1 fastball and Castellanos creamed it. Pillar raced to left-center field, scaled the wall, and snagged the ball to rob Castellanos of a homer.

Despite Pillar’s effort, the Jays were still blown out 9-1. They’ll wrap up their four-game series with the Tigers on Monday before welcoming the Mets and Yankees to Toronto to finish out the homestand.
