The Nationals were ahead 1-0 entering the eighth inning against the Cardinals on Saturday.
But St. Louis was threatening - the one hit against Washington's ace came in the bottom of the seventh, a single from Paul Goldschmidt. Though the pressure of an unbroken no-hitter had been lifted, the pressure of a potential shutout was mounting.
Enter Adam Eaton.
His two-RBI hit put Washington ahead 3-0 and gave his team some breathing room heading to the bottom of the inning.
Then, he made a soaring catch almost at the warning track in right field and momentarily prevented a potentially-hurtful double.

Let's see that stretch again.
Add a cape and Adam Eaton would truly fit his "Mighty Mouse" nickname.
