Watch Ram贸n Laureano casually rob home run from Angels' Brian Goodwin

Athletics

A鈥檚 pitchers Yusmeiro Petit and Chris Bassitt are going to buy Ram贸n Laureano a nice steak dinner after the performance(s) he put on Wednesday.

The A鈥檚 centerfielder made a few strong plays against the Angels, but one in particular was peak Laureano. The fact that he robbed a home run of Los Angeles outfielder Brian Goodwin was great, but watch how casual he made the catch look:

I鈥檓 literally laughing out loud. How does he make it look so easy? All in a day鈥檚 work for Laureano.

This saved the Angels from tying it up in the bottom of the seventh, but that鈥檚 typical of the A's outfielder.

Laureano was given a six-game suspension after his role in the A鈥檚-Astros bench-clearing brawl on Sunday, but has elected to appeal it. That means, when he does serve the ban, the A鈥檚 will be without him for the time being, but they have a phenomenal back-up plan in Chad Pinder.

Pinder鈥檚 middle name could be 鈥渄iverse,鈥 if it wasn鈥檛 Hudson. The guy can do it all, and he can do it well. Just as he did on Tuesday night against the Angels in the 6-0 loss.聽
