Thanks to the revolutionary Statcast tracking technology, we can see just how all-out McCutchen's effort was on the play.
Wong's sinking liner left his bat at 73.8 mph and hung in the air for a little more than 3.5 seconds, according to Statcast. McCutchen's first step came within 0.4 seconds.
From there, McCutchen accelerated toward the ball and reached a maximum speed of 19.2 mph when he hit his stride.
The former National League Most Valuable Player covered 58.6 feet as he raced toward Busch Stadium's shallow center field, taking a route that graded out with 99.2 percent efficiency before rolling up and flipping the ball to the infield with a flourish.
What's more, McCutchen's highlight-reel grab preserved Liriano's no-hitter, which lasted into the sixth inning.
McCutchen's catch compares well to two of the finest grabs Statcast has measured this season.
Last week in Detroit, Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner reached a maximum speed of 17.2 mph heading toward the wall, while Jacoby Ellsbury sprinted at 21 mph before diving toward the warning track in right-center field at Comerica Park.
