VIDEO: Michael Brantley Robs Alex Rios Of 3-Run Homer With Incredible Catch

The Cleveland Indians are the walking wounded in Chicago this weekend, playing Saturday without Carlos Santana, Travis Hafner, and Asdrubal Cabrera. That leaves their lineup incredibly shorthanded and Derek Lowe scuffled through the first inning. But Lowe was picked up by his centerfielder Michael Brantley in the bottom of the first, when the speedy Brantley raced to the wall in center and brought back what would have been a three-run shot for Alex Rios. It was an incredible catch and Rios walked away cursing under his breath.

Video after the jump:

Lowe, however, continued his rocky start and spotted the Sox four runs in the first. The shorthanded Tribe responded with a five-run third inning to re-take the lead in a game with plenty of early fireworks.
