Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder Jarrod Dyson continues his impressive day Wednesday afternoon by robbing a home run against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

In the top of the seventh inning with two outs, Joc Pederson was up to bat when he hit a 95 MPH fastball off of Stefan Crichton into right-center field that looked like it was going to go over the fence near the pool.

Dyson and Tim Locastro, who was playing in right field, both ran to the wall to try and make the play.

As Locastro jumped up to attempt to catch the ball, Dyson also jumped to make the catch and was able to grab the ball as the two collided, robbing Pederson of a home run.

This isn’t the first time Dyson has robbed a home run in a D-backs uniform. In fact, he robbed a home run three times last season before going down with a right groin injury in July.

Dyson had a good day at the plate going 3-for-5 with a double and two stolen bases.

He is currently leading the National League in stolen bases with 19 steals so far this season.

On the season, the 34-year-old outfielder is hitting .256 with five home runs and a .344 on-base percentage.

The D-backs as a whole pounced on Dodgers rookie right-hander Tony Gonsolin, who was making his major league debut as the starter, scoring eight runs before the sixth inning.

After scoring eight runs, D-backs pitchers were able to keep the Dodgers’ bats quiet as they won by a score of 8-2.
