This Minor Leaguer's catch literally brought the house down

Red Sox Minor League outfielder Corey Brown had himself a night on Friday.

Brown started in center field for Triple-A Pawtucket as they took on the Twins-affiliated Rochester Red Wings, and wound up bringing the house down with his awesome play -- literally.

Not only did Brown jumpstart his team's offense with a third-inning moonshot, but he also managed to make this fantastic leaping grab in the ninth inning on a deep fly ball off the bat of Red Wings shortstop Danny Santana:

That's right -- Brown's evening was so good, the outfield walls actually decided to bow down at his feet.

"I was just going out there, trying to make a play for the pitcher," Brown said after the game, unfazed by the spontaneous show of adoration from the decor.

"It was a good team we were playing against and, you know, they have the ability to come back at any moment. So, I just wanted to go out there and give it all I got."
