Minor Leaguer makes over-the-shoulder catch to win playoff game, spikes baseball (VIDEO)

The Columbus Clippers (Cleveland's Triple-A affiliate), who won a close Game 1 of the International League Finals by a score of 6-5 on Tuesday night,  found themselves in another nail biter on Wednesday. Their opponent, the Indianapolis Indians, were threatening with two outs and the bases loaded in the top of the ninth inning. On an 0-2 pitch, batter Willy Garcia crushed one seemingly over center fielder Tyler Holt's head.

But somehow, with an amazing over-the-shoulder catch, Holt hauled in the baseball and ended the game. 

And a jubilant Holt celebrated like he was Gronk crossing the goal line.

The best-of-five series continues Thursday night.
