Lorenzo Cain saved Orlando Arcia's deflection with a diving catch and flashed a brilliant smile afterward

"Lorenzo's Oil" is a dramatic, emotionally affecting 1992 drama starring Susan Sarandon and Nick Nolte.
"Lorenzo's Smile" is not the title of a film -- yet -- but it may as well be after seeing the spectacular save Brewers outfielder Lorenzo Cain made on a popup off the bat of Nick Williams in Friday's 12-4 win over the Phillies
In the eighth inning, Williams lofted a shallow fly toward Cain in center. Orlando Arcia raced toward the ball, attempted a running catch, but tipped it -- right into the waiting glove of an aware Cain:

Cain relished the moment, for sure. Look at this post-grab reaction:

"That was a cool one, man," Brewers manager Craig Counsell told MLB.com's Joe Bloss after the game. "First of all, that's the catch that Arcia seems to make with his eyes closed, so it's shocking he doesn't catch the ball, but Lo was right there, right in the spot ready to make a nice play. He'll get some highlight love for that one."
If you watch a lot of Brewers games, this type of sequence might seem familiar. Christian Yelich and Hernán Pérez staged their own version back on April 18:

That's two times in the season's first two-plus months, for those keeping score at home.
