Video: Laynce Nix denies Drew Stubbs of a home run

Drew Stubbs probably thought he had a home run Wednesday before Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Laynce Nix changed all that.

With one out and no runners on in the bottom of the fourth, the Cleveland Indians hitter skied a ball high and deep toward the right field wall at Progressive Field off southpaw Cliff Lee. This is when Nix's Spiderman instincts apparently kick in as he eventually makes one heck of a catch to snag a potential home run ball from Stubbs.

As you can see, the MLB veteran times his leap perfectly while making the grab. Needless to say, Lee was really appreciative of Nix's effort on that one.
