San Francisco Giants: Angel Pagan’s Top Five Moments as a Giant
By Michael Saltzman
4 of 6
In the eighth inning of a tie game and a runner on first, the San Diego Padres Carlos Quentin drove a ball deep to left center field. Angel Pagan made a tremendous diving catch laying completely out for the ball. Chase Headley, who had been at first base had already rounded second when the catch was made. Pagan sprung to his feet and fired a perfect strike to Brandon Crawford, who relayed the ball to Brandon Belt in time for the double play. It was one of the most sensational plays of the 2012 season for the Giants, which is saying something in a championship year. It wasn’t Pagan’s most important catch, however, which came later that season.
