Mookie Betts punctuates Dodgers NL-West clinching win with stunning catch, celebration

Sep 14, 2022

The Los Angeles Dodgers clinched the NL West on Tuesday with 21 games left to play.

Mookie Betts made sure that they did so in style. The five-time Dodgers Gold Glove winner robbed a would-be hit with a catch-of-the-year candidate in the Dodgers' 4-0 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks.

With no outs in the seventh inning, outfielder Jake McCarthy skied a Clayton Kershaw pitch down the right-field line that looked destined for extra bases. Betts had other ideas. He sprinted from right-center field, slid feet-first on the warning track, then plucked the ball from the air just inches from the ground.
