Tuesday was not a good night for the Nats, but Gio Gonzalez provided a shining moment with this diving catch on a bunt by the Braves’ Andrelton Simmons.

“Gio Gonzalez, with one of the better plays you’ll ever see a pitcher make on a bunt,” exclaimed F.P. Santangelo. “Watch the reaction, like a cat.”

Gonzalez is no stranger to hitting the turf face first. At least this time it was on purpose.
