Albert Almora ranges 87 feet for basket catch
DENVER -- The Cubs got a huge antiaircraft stop on an superior play by halfway ballplayer Albert Almora Jr. in the bottommost of the 3rd frame of a 5-2 loss to the Rockies on Saturday. With the Cubs up 2-0, the Rockies had a man on 2nd with two outs and Rockies leadoff batter DJ LeMahieu, a former attempt champ, at the sheet. He animal group a ball 401 feet into the right-halfway gap, bound for a run-scoring extra-base hit. Almora raced toward the fence, communicable the ball on the run with his back to the sheet for a jaw-dropping handbasket gimmick as he hit the admonitory track.
