There have been fewer highlights on this road trip than we have cared to count, but Javier Lopez provided some fun in the extra innings of Wednesday’s game against the Cincinnati Reds:

That hot shot came off of the bat of Brandon Phillips, and that ball just seemed to find Lopez’s glove. Lopez then finished off the 10th inning with this defensive play that Buster Posey also gave him some help on.

Lopez has a 1.80 ERA and 2.06 FIP in 2013 and has continued to be a solid arm in the pen. It is speculated that should the Giants fall far enough out of contention, Lopez would be a name that would be traded.
