This is why we love him

In any other game, that's a game-winning hit.

As a Brewers fan, I have the utmost respect for Brandon Phillips.

Billy Hamilton made another, just as awesome play in extras to keep the game going.

Nice catch. Based almost totally on reaction though, and not nearly as impressive as an outfielder making the same type of grab after sprinting 30 yards.

Whatever.  I did that in little league.  A game for prepubescent boys, played by fat old men.

Looks like no late game heroics will save them tonight. Down 9-1 in the 6th.

HOW EXCITING!

Good thing it had a hump on it. A real ball player would've gotten right up as if they've done it before. Yawn.

Baseball player catches ball.

Isn't this what they get paid to do?

Yes, and that douche-nozzle Chesley Sullenberger gets paid to land planes just like every other pilot. I can't believe he was exalted for doing his job.

Ultimate frisbee players do this a dozen times a match.

Best game I have been to yet.  Also got to go for free and sit in a luxury box with unlimited free food (which was awesome) and lots of beer paid for by my boss (also awesome).  Freaking fantastic experience.

/Not a single home run in the whole game, which seemed odd considering how high-scoring it was.
//Go Nats!

It's a great play, and not every player would have made it, but there are plenty who could, both infield and outfield.

Likewise, Sully is hardly the only pilot who could have pulled off that water landing.

But both are still cool guys, so it's all good.

Sounds fun. Span goes 5/5 and then starts today off with a homer.
