Jackie stalks giant drive, robs Judge homer

But when Bradley is in center, you can never assume anything. He raced back, jumped out and made a jaw-dropping grab with his arm outstretched over the bullpen.

The Fenway crowd was still roaring for quite a while even after the catch.

Price gave Bradley a huge smile, struck out Matt Holliday and headed to the dugout with the shutout intact.

The blast by Judge had a 94 percent hit probability and was a perfect barrel, based on the exit velocity (107.5-mph) and launch angle (32 degrees). According to Statcastâ„¢, such a hit is a home run more than nine out of 10 times.
