With the ball in the air, Grandal jumped to make the catch next to the Giants' on-deck circle, and fell to his left as the ball popped out of his mitt, then kept his focus to make the catch again.

Grandal also shined at the plate, breaking up a perfect game by Giants starter Johnny Cueto in the bottom of the fifth. The Giants held off a late rally as the Dodgers took a 4-3 loss.
