San Francisco Giants outfielder Austin Slater made an amazing catch in the 8th inning of Wednesday night’s game against the Cincinnati Reds to help keep Alex Cobb’s no-hit bid alive.

With one out and a runner on first base, Reds batter Brandon Drury hit a line drive to right field. Slater raced back to the wall and made a diving catch to rob Drury of a hit.

The catch was so impressive that it drew a standing ovation from the crowd at Oracle Park.

Cobb ended up finishing the 8th inning with 10 strikeouts and no hits allowed. He was perfect through 7 innings, but gave up a single to Drury in the 8th.

Cobb was ultimately denied a no-hitter, as he gave up a two-out double to Matt Reynolds in the 9th inning. However, he still pitched a brilliant game and helped the Giants to a 6-1 victory.

Slater’s catch was one of the most memorable plays of the season so far. It helped to keep Cobb’s no-hit bid alive and helped the Giants to a much-needed victory.

Slater’s catch was a reminder of why he is one of the most popular players on the Giants. He is a hard-nosed player who always gives his all. He is also a great teammate and a fan favorite.

The Giants are lucky to have Austin Slater on their team. He is a valuable asset to the team and he always seems to come up big in the clutch.
