Carl Crawford Follows Up 3-Run Homer with Outstanding Catch and Somersault

Carl Crawford did it all for the Los Angeles Dodgers on Sunday, helping lift the team to a victory over the Atlanta Braves with his glove and his bat.

Crawford chose Game 3 of a Division Series knotted at one game apiece as his stage to put on a show, the highlight of which was this sensational catch in foul territory.

Words can't even describe how filthy this play was, and only an infinite loop can make you fully appreciate it.

Fans and analysts alike were blown away by this beautiful diving grab, and you can bet that Crawford is going to be all over highlight reels the next couple days.

Incredibly, this wasn't even Crawford's biggest contribution of the night.

While the catch was unbelievable, Crawford did much more damage with his bat Sunday night.

He cranked a three-run home run to put the Dodgers ahead, 4-2, after an early deficit in the second inning.

The Dodgers would never trail from there, as Crawford (2-for-5, 3 RBI, 3 R) helped lead the team's offense to a 13-run outburst against a talented Braves pitching staff.

Crawford deserves Player of the Game honors for the team's Game 3 victory. His Dodgers now hold a 2-1 advantage over the Braves in the series and are one win away from a trip to the NLCS.
