Braves outfielder Eury Perez celebrates catch he didn't make (VIDEO)

Eury Perez had a couple of plays in the fifth inning of the Giants-Braves matchup on Tuesday that make fans shake their heads in wonder then hang them in frustration.

First, the Braves outfielder made a sensational backhanded diving catch to rob the Giants' Brandon Crawford of an extra-base hit. But on an almost identical play moments later he thinks he robbed Ehire Adrianza the same way and stands up and celebrates by sticking his glove into the air — only to find out the ball wasn't there.

Here's a wide-angle shot for a more complete view:

At least the Braves dugout had a good laugh about it after he returned to the dugout.

We'll give both plays equal time in this video:
