Just as notable as Betts’ incredible catch was his immediate reaction: The 28-year-old hollered, “Let’s go!” and sprinted toward the Dodgers’ dugout after helping preserve Los Angeles’ 3-0 lead.

We can only think of one other time we’ve seen Betts this amped up on a baseball field:

That was a July 2018 game between the Red Sox and Blue Jays, though, and the stakes were much higher Saturday, as the Dodgers need a win to force Game 7 against Atlanta.

Betts entered Game 6 just 4-for-18 in the series with one RBI, but he reminded everyone Saturday night why he’s still one of the most exciting players in baseball.
