Aaron Judge isn’t the only game in town.
A day after the Yankees outfielder made a home run-robbing grab against the Mariners, Mets center fielder Brandon Nimmo served up his own web gem.
Nimmo, in full stride, leapt at the left-center field wall to keep Nick Castellanos’ fourth-inning long ball in the park and the Mets and Phillies knotted at 0-0.
The dynamic Mets outfielder threw in an emphatic fist-pump after coming down with the ball at Citi Field while wearing a wide grin.
Pitcher Kodai Senga, who’s 0-1 pitch to Castellanos looked like a goner, held his hands on his head in joyful disbelief at the defensive effort.
The catch and ensuing fist-pump by Nimmo was reminiscent of his grab against the the Dodgers last Aug. 31, in which he denied Dodgers slugger Justin Turner of a game-tying shot.
“What a play,” manager Buck Showalter said of the 2022 snag. “When you look at minor league players, one of the questions I ask is can they turn hits into outs? I never ask can they turn home runs into outs? Maybe I should.”
