Yangervis Solarte's reaction to Craig Kimbrel's knuckle-curveball was priceless

Craig Kimbrel is ridiculous on the mound. Not only does his bird-like stance make him a unique presence, but his velocity has reached over 100 mph on numerous occasions throughout the years. Needless to say, watching him in action will often leave you in shock. Just ask Yangervis Solarte.
In the bottom of the ninth, during the Red Sox 4-3 win over the Blue Jays on Wednesday, Kimbrel threw a nasty knuckle-curve that left Solarte ... well, his reaction speaks for itself:

There were barely any words. All he could mouth was "wow," showing he couldn't believe what he was watching.
Sometimes game recognizes game.
