As Nationals outfielder Victor Robles continues his campaign for the first Gold Glove of his career, he's earned another award to help his case.

Last Tuesday against Philadelphia, Robles hauled in an impressive, over-the-shoulder leaping grab to rob Alec Bohm of an extra-base hit. After making the catch, Robles quickly fired in a laser from the warning tack back to first base to double off Jean Segura.

The entire play was quite impressive from the 23-year-old and good enough to win MLB's Play of the Week.

The honor was the second time Robles has won the award since it became a thing last season. Only Brewers outfielder Lorenzo Cain (three times) has earned the award more than the Washington center fielder.

Cain also edged out Robles for the Gold Glove last season. Robles is doing everything he can in 2020 to make sure the award is his.
