Heyward saves the game for the Braves as they come from behind to top the Mets.

Jason Heyward Game Saving Catch [VIDEO]

The New York Mets have had some poor luck this season and Monday night summed it up perfectly. They blew a 1-0 lead in the ninth inning and they looked dead in the water in the bottom of the 9th after the Atlanta Braves scored another run. Trailing 2-1 in the bottom of the inning with men on first and second, Justin Turner came to the plate and hit a hard line drive that looked like it would be the game-winning hit. 

Not so fast. Jason Heyward, who had just returned from injury in time for the game Monday and was playing center field for only the fifth time in his career because of injuries, had other plans in mind. Heyward tracked down the ball, laid out and made the catch at full extension, keeping the 2-1 victory for Atlanta. That's one impressive catch.
