Video: Curtis Granderson's spectacular catch saves a run for Mets

Curtis Granderson spectacularly hauled in Brandon Belt’s drive to deep center and crashed hard into the wall to save a run for Noah Syndergaard with a runner on second base for the final out of the sixth inning, preserving a scoreless tie and prompting chants of “Grandy” from the home crowd.

Postseason defensive heroics are nothing new for Granderson, who started his career as a center fielder but this season in right, especially when Syndergaard is on the hill.
