Video: Ryan Braun robs Adrian Gonzalez of a home run

Milwaukee Brewers slugger Ryan Braun is known more for his hitting prowess rather than his ability to patrol the outfield. But on this play, it was his glove that stole the show.

Check out his defensive wizardry as he pulls back a potential home run from Los Angeles Dodgers first basemen Adrian Gonzalez in the sixth inning of Wednesday night's game.

As you can see, Braun has to go a long way to track down this baseball. But the manner in which he does so is simply textbook. He gets a good jump, strides toward the potential landing spot, feels for the wall, and then times his jump perfectly to make the snag.

It all adds up to a beautiful and legal robbery.
