Yasiel Puig swooped in to make a surprise catch right in front of Joc Pederson

With a runner on first and two outs in the sixth inning of the Dodgers' 4-3 win over the Nationals in NLDS Game 1, Bryce Harper hit a floating popup to right-center field. Joc Pederson immediately ran over and positioned himself under the ball, calling for it the whole way to make sure everyone knew he had it.

He really called for it:

Pederson, however, was not the Dodgers outfielder who ultimately had it. That would be one Yasiel Puig, who swooped in at the very last second to catch the ball, much to Joc's surprise:

Hey, an out's an out. 

And because Pederson and Puig are consistently amusing on social media, this happened after the game:
