The Cincinnati Reds avoided a sweep at the hands of the Miami Marlins with a 7-2 win Sunday, and Jay Bruce had one of the biggest plays of the game.

In the top of the eighth inning, Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton hit what looked like his 30th home run of the season. That is, until Bruce launched himself off of the right-field wall to rob Stanton of a round-tripper.

Here's a video of the exciting play.
