Jackie Bradley Jr. did his thing Saturday afternoon.
The defensive wizard robbed Justin Williams of extra basses in the eighth inning of the Brewers’ eventual 9-5 win over the St. Louis Cardinals at Busch Stadium. It was the first highlight-reel play in a Milwaukee uniform for Bradley, who spent the first eight years of his Major League Baseball career making sensational plays with the Boston Red Sox.

And here’s a closer look:
Bradley this season has played his typically great defense but has struggled with the bat. Through seven games, the 30-year-old is hitting .083 (two hits) with one home run and one RBI.
