WATCH: San Francisco Giants Juan Perez makes near impossible catch to preserve perfect game

Baseball is a game full of prophesies.  One is that if you’re put in the game defensively, the ball will find you.  Another is that if you’re going to get a perfect game, you’ll have at least one amazing defensive play to save your bacon.  While the “perfecto” by Yusmeiro Petit didn’t come to fruition by just one out, Juan Perez fulfilled both prophesies at the time.  Having just been put in the game as a defensive substitution in the 6th inning, Perez was tested later in the inning on a sinking liner by Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher Patrick Corbin, and managed to pluck it with his glove just above the top of the blades of grass.  Watch the play unfold, courtesy of MLB.com:
