Manuel Margot might have just made the catch of the American League Championship Series.
The Tampa Bay Rays right fielder flipped over the railing in foul territory to end the second inning in grand fashion.
With the Houston Astros threatening to score with runners on second and third base, outfielder George Springer hit a long fly ball down the right field line that Margot was able to track down.
He came up hobbling, showing his glove to the umpire that he made the catch.
According to Statcast, Margot had to run more than 100 feet to track down the ball.

Margot is familiar with Petco Park, home of the San Diego Padres and site of the ALCS. He spent the previous four seasons with the Padres before he was traded to the Rays in the offseason.
And if his acrobatic catch wasn't enough, Margot got the Rays on the board early and turned a Jose Altuve error into a three-run home run in the first inning.
The Rays lead the series 1-0.
