WATCH: Matt den Dekker Robs Ryan Howard Of A Home Run
- Updated: June 2, 2014
In the top of the second inning of the Mets-Phillies game on Monday night. Ryan Howard, who only had two hits against Bartolo Colon in his career which both happened to be home runs, looked like he was about to get his third.
That was until Matt den Dekker, starting tonight because regular Mets center fielder and defense whiz Juan Lagares was on the DL, had other ideas…
That is some catch and den Dekker is not someone who hasn’t made great catches before. He has had the Sportscenter Top Play of the night on multiple occasions and some people thought a year ago he would be where Lagares is today if not for breaking his wrist last year.
With the chance to get some playing time now, he has certainly gotten off to a great start in the field.
