It wasn’t a banner regular season for the center fielder, but with three homers against Milwaukee and now the defensive play of the month so far, Chris Young is making a name for himself in October.

With Brewers on first and second, Young ran down a long Jerry Hairston Jr. drive in the sixth inning to momentarily keep Friday’s Game 5 tied.

Here’s the video.

Yuniesky Betancourt did follow with a single, giving Milwaukee a 2-1 lead. But Young’s catch will leave a lasting impression.

    Though technically correct, that was more than the play of the month. Holy Crapola, what a play. We will go years without seeing a better one.

    Oh please. Fine play. Not even the play of the week

    Great catch, but comparing to Willie Mays’ catch is absurd. Mays had to go at least 50 feet further to rob Vic Wertz in the “54 Series.

    50 ft further for young would’ve put him about 30 ft past the wall.
