Over the last two games, Revere has made some fantastic plays in center field. On Sunday, he made the over-the-shoulder catch against Brandon Belt to take two runs away from the Giants. Last night, Revere didn’t end up saving the game, but it shouldn’t take away from the play he made.
In the top of the sixth, Roberto Perez hit a ball to deep center field that looked destined for extra bases to start the inning, but Revere made a leaping catch against the wall to keep the no-hitter intact. If Scherzer did complete the no-no, that catch would be played on a loop in baseball history for a long time.
Revere has had a disappointing season offensively, but he was the only Washington Nationals player last night to have a multi-hit game (2-for-4) and he has two multi-hit games in the last four games. At the same time, his batting average is only at .212 for the season.
In the end, Revere is not going to provide much offense to the Washington Nationals lineup, especially since he is hitting .169 since the All-Star Break in 59 at-bats. But, at the same time, his defense can play a factor, especially today when he starts in center field with rookie Brian Goodwin in right field for Harper.
