Jarrod Dyson takes a solo home run away from Christian Yelich with a perfectly timed leap at the center-field wall to end the 1st inning
Yelich planted into the padding and retained possession while tumbling backward to the ground.
Per Statcast-, the hit probability on the liner was 73 percent. The exit velocity was 101.3 mph, and the estimated distance was 398 feet. The catch had a 46 percent catch probability and was a four-star play (with five stars being the most difficult).
Yelich was briefly shaken up on the play, and his body left an impression on the padding.
For Yelich, it was a bit of payback.
When Dyson was with the Royals last year on Aug. 25 at Marlins Park, he ran down a long drive by Yelich and made a leaping catch at the wall. He may have robbed Yelich of a homer, or at least extra bases.

With Dyson's speed, he may have been able to stretch it to a triple, if the ball fell.
Another twist: Edinson Volquez was on the mound for both great catches -- with the Marlins on Wednesday, and with the Royals last August.
