One on, two out, bottom of the 12th inning is a pre-tty important moment in a baseball game. And when the Giants' Juan Perez got up and took a piece out of Padre Nick Vincent's pitch, he thought he might have broken things open.

But: but. Will Venable had a different idea. His backward-running, over-the-shoulder dive-and-grab is about as magician-like a catch as a baseball player can make while still obeying the dictates of his human body.

And the Padres won in the 13th. Oh dang indeed.
