Over the past few seasons, Clayton Kershaw has become unofficially become the best pitcher in baseball with a pair of Cy Young awards and utter dominance on the mound.

In addition to his pitching prowess, the left-hander is also known as a decent batter, strong defender and fierce competitor. Kershaw showed off two of those qualities in the fifth inning of Sunday’s game against the Milwaukee Brewers.

With one out and Rickie Weeks on third, Brewers shortstop Jean Segura attempted a squeeze bunt to bring home a run. Kershaw broke towards the plate once he recognized the attempt and Segura popped it up, allowing Kershaw to make an incredible diving catch for the second out. The 26-year-old promptly got to his feet and tossed to third to double off Weeks. The play saved a run and kept the Dodgers in the lead, 2-1.
