Video: Jay Bruce robs Andrew McCutchen of a home run

Jay Bruce starred in more ways than just his bat Wednesday.

The Gold Glover proved his defensive worth in the seventh inning when Pirates star Andrew McCutchen lifted a ball high and deep toward the right field wall.

The lengthy flight of the ball allowed Bruce to smoothly retreat back to the warning track as he prepared to time his jump. As you can see, this isn't Bruce's first attempt at robbing a home run, and he times his jump perfectly to bring back a ball that looked as if it was heading for the stands.

Bruce's effort kept the score at 1-0 and eventually allowed him to smack a game-tying home run just two innings later.
