Kevin Pillar Lays Out for a Superman Catch, Again

At what point will Kevin Pillar's ridiculous diving grabs cease to amaze?

I don't know the exact answer, but I do know that it's not today.

Just over a week after the Toronto Blue Jays center fielder made this insane diving Superman catch in the left-center hole in the outfield, Pillar gave us a redux of what people everywhere really want on Tuesday against the New York Yankees: a Superman not directed (and run into the ground) by Zack Snyder.

Pillar started off the top of the fourth inning by tracking down a fly ball and making a grab at the warning track look easy.

One out later, Pillar sprinted into right center to lay out like the Man of Steel to end the frame.

"Off the bat, as I watched it, I just thought there was no way that ball was going to be caught," said Blue Jays starter J.A. Happ. "Then he covered the ground and somehow got it."

It's a good thing, too. Because not only did he take away two possible extra-base hits in the inning, Pillar also struck a timely RBI single to break up a 1-1 ballgame in the bottom of the seventh. 

Toronto won 4-1 to improve to 28-26.
