Video: Juan Lagares takes away home run from Andrew McCutchen

New York Mets reliever Bobby Parnell may owe teammate Juan Lagares a steak dinner for the catch he made to save the game Thursday night.

The game was tied at two in the top of the ninth inning when Lagares essentially denied a go-ahead home run from Pirates slugger Andrew McCutchen. Watch as Lagares ranges a long way to make the sparkling grab at the Citi Field wall to end the inning.

As you can see, Parnell was really happy about it. But his good fortunes would soon continue as the Mets plated a run in the home half of the ninth to notch a walkoff victory.

Parnell wound up as the winning pitcher to improve his record to a spotless 4-0 in 2013. He now has more wins than he does saves (3).
