Red Sox

It wasn't quite the game-saving catch from Game 4 of the ALCS, but it'll do.

Andrew Benintendi made a sensational leaping grab in the top of the fifth inning of World Series Game 2.

Informed about the "Air Benny" nickname after Boston's 4-2 victory, the Sox left fielder gave it his seal of approval: "That's got a nice little ring to it."

Benintendi's grab prevented the Dodgers from building off their fourth-inning rally.

As one would expect, the catch sparked plenty of reactions on Twitter:
