Willy Adames has energized the Milwaukee Brewers this season with his play and personality since he arrived from Tampa Bay in May.

He did it again in Game 2 of the National League Division Series with his amazing catch in foul territory in the top of the first inning against the Atlanta Braves. And it put the towel-waving crowd at American Family Field on its feet.

With a 1-1 count and one out and Freddie Freeman on first base, the left-handed hitting Ozzie Albies popped it up on the left side past third base in foul territory.

It didn't seem like any Brewers player had a chance. Then Adames entered the picture. Adames was already moved over from his usual position with a shift on, but the speedy shortstop ran toward the tarp near the seats. He stuck out his glove and made the no-look catch before crashing into the tarp.

Take a look at the highlight-reel catch here.
