2015 Boston Red Sox Play of the Year

The Red Sox play of the year happened Friday night, and somehow, amazingly, it wasn't even this:

All due credit to Dustin Pedroia and Xander Bogaerts for providing one of the more exciting baseball highlight's you'll ever see, but Mookie Betts takes the cake:

Betts' home-run-robbing catch was outstanding in its own right, but the context is what made it truly spectacular--the final out of the ballgame to preserve a shutout for Rich Hill, who until his magical emergence in Boston's rotation two weeks ago last made a big league start in 2009.

Plus, it was perfect karmic redemption for the eerily similar "home run" Betts couldn't hang on to two months ago.
