Jayson Werth plays role of Superman Werth

Jun 11, 2009, 2:07 AM EDT

Chase Utley hit two home runs on Wednesday, including what proved the game-winner in the top of the 11th, as the Phillies beat the Mets.

But before Utley could go yard, Jayson Werth saved the day in the
bottom of the 10th, snaring David Wright’s smoking liner with a
diving/falling down catch to end the inning. Fernando Martinez was on
first base and likely would’ve scored if the ball had gotten past
Werth.

You can view video of the catch here.

Werth is proving to be quite a versatile player, giving the Phillies
a fine outfield with Shane Victorino and the suddenly — and perhaps unfairly — embattled Raul Ibanez.

In the meantime, the injury-plagued Mets must try to stay afloat during a brutal stretch of games.
