Watch Yaz epically rob home run; Cobb's great celebration originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea

Mike Yastrzemski made the play of the game in the bottom of the fourth inning against the San Diego Padres on Tuesday night at Petco Park.

Following Juan Soto's mammoth home run to tie the game at one apiece, Giants starting pitcher Alex Cobb retired both Manny Machado and Josh Bell before designated hitter Brandon Drury crushed a line drive to center field.

To Cobb's amazement, Yastrzemski was able to bring the ball back over the wall and save what would have been a home run.

Yastrzemski has put on a masterclass in defense this season, and his home run-robbing catch was just the latest addition to an ever-growing 2022 highlight reel.

Cobb certainly was fired up after the catch, throwing both arms in the air to celebrate the incredible grab.

The Giants squeaked out a 1-0 win over the Padres on Monday night and both offenses continued to struggle again through six innings again Tuesday night.

Yastrzemski's catch not only saved a run, but potentially could end up saving the game.
