Watch Andrew Benintendi fling half his body over the wall to bring back a home run

Since his callup back on Aug. 1, Andrew Benintendi has been incredibly impressive for the Red Sox. Entering Monday's game against the Rays, he had 19 hits in 18 games -- good for a .322/.375/.492 slash line. His name rhymes with trendy. He has amazing hair.

And during his team's 6-2 win over Tampa Bay on Monday, he preserved a three-run lead (and sent Boston into a first-place tie with the Blue Jays) with this unreal catch over the left-field wall: 

The 22-year-old talked to's Sam Blum about the catch after the game.
"I think that's the best catch I've ever made," Benintendi said. "I've never really had an opportunity to take one back."
And David Price, who was the winning pitcher and played most of his career in Tropicana Field, weighed in on the home-run robbery:
"I spent seven years here," said Price, the former Rays pitcher. "I didn't see that catch too many times. It doesn't happen a whole lot. That was huge."
Good try, Steve Souza Jr., but you just got dominated in a game of Benintendo. I'm sorry (and I'm sorry for that horrible pun).
