Video: Derrick Robinson robs home run to preserve shutout

In case you missed it, Bronson Arroyo hurled a complete-game shutout Monday night against the San Francisco Giants, aided in part by a fantastic catch in center field by Derrick Robinson to put the finishing touches on an 11-0 victory.

The play came in the bottom of the ninth with two outs when Arroyo flipped a hanging breaking bal in the wheelhouse of Giants hitter Jeff Francoeur. Francoeur pounded the pitch to deep center field and it appeared as though the ball would clear the fence and put the Giants on the board.

But Robinson wasn't having any of that as he leaped up, pulled the ball back into play, and juggled it briefly before finally corralling the last out of the contest.

Robinson's catch effectively sealed Arroyo's 100th win as a Red and improved Cincinnati's record over San Francisco to 4-0 in 2013.
