Milwaukee Brewers center fielder Jonathan Davis potentially made the catch of the year Wednesday afternoon against the Tampa Bay Rays.

The incredible play came in the second inning with Randy Arozarena batting for the Rays. He hit a deep fly ball to center field at Tropicana Stadium and Davis was able to track it down to make a diving over-the-shoulder catch for the out. He would faceplant onto the padding in center field.

However, Davis was in pain after making the catch. He appeared to injure his back. He would stay in the game, but he would later be replaced by Jace Peterson.

Davis’ catch and Rowdy Tellez’s prowess at the plate helped Milwaukee to a 5-3 win.
