When hitters stand in the box against the Reds, they probably have the same goal in mind as they would against any other team: Get a hit, or wind up on base somehow. Any way possible, really.

According to Statcast, Hamilton had to run pretty far straight back to the center-field wall to even have a chance to reel in this fly ball -- which he did, of course.

Add that one to the ongoing highlight reel.
