Philadelphia Phillies center fielder Odubel Herrera pulled off one of the better home run thefts at Citizens Bank Park, robbing Atlanta Braves slugger Freddie Freeman of a two-run home run in the third inning on Saturday.

Ruled a catch on the field, umpires reviewed the play to make sure the ball had not hit the bush first, which would have been a home run, but the call stood.

Adding a bit of comedy to the moment was Nick Pivetta.

The Phillies starter who gave up Freeman's deep shot had a look of despair on his face until Herrera made the catch, when he broke into a broad smile.
