Seeing is believing: Watch Dodgers' Joc Pederson's game-saving catch

Watch Dodgers center fielder Joc Pederson make an amazing catch in win over San Diego Padres on Sunday

This is too great.

If you're part of the majority of Los Angeles who still can't watch the Dodgers on TV or you simply missed their game Sunday, here is the MLB clip of Joc Pederson's remarkable catch at Petco Park.

The situation: The game is tied 2-2 in the bottom of the ninth against the Padres, who have two on with two outs and Dodger-killer Justin Upton batting against Juan Nicasio.

Upton sends a bomb to center field. At first blush, if it's not out, it certainly appears well behind Pederson and a dramatic walk-off hit. Pederson was playing fairly shallow.

Only he turned and ran — no, sprinted to near dead center. He turned one way, turned the other then stretched out to make a one-handed stab just before he crashed hard into the center-field wall — thankfully, it was padded — and bounced off, flat on his back, onto the warning track. Still holding the ball.

The Dodgers went on to win the game 4-2 in 12 innings.
