Watch Kevin Pillar Rob Reds Top Prospect Nick Senzel of First Home Run

Nick Senzel looked well on his way to his first career MLB home run Saturday, but Giants center fielder Kevin Pillar had other ideas.

The Cincinnati Reds' top prospect -- and the fifth-best in basseball according to MLB Pipeline -- crushed Giants starter Dereck Rodriguez' four-seam fastball to deep center field. But Pillar got a great jump on the ball, channeled Spider-Man and climbed the center-field wall to rob Senzel of a milestone dinger.

The center fielder, who the Giants acquired in a trade with the Toronto Blue Jays last month, had plenty of time on the wall to adjust his glove and ensure he made the catch.

Rodriguez could only follow it up with one reaction.

Saturday's sequel to the Giants' crazy comeback win on Friday hasn't featured nearly as much offense for San Francisco, as the Giants trailed 5-1 at the time of Pillar's catch. It already has it beat in terms of highlight-reel catches, though.
