On Wednesday afternoon, the Philadelphia Phillies and San Francisco Giants played the final game of their three-game series at Citizens Bank Park.

In the bottom of the second inning, Phillies centerfielder Mickey Moniak hit the first home run of his professional career, giving the home team a 3-0 lead early in the game.

In the stands, a baby had wound up with the home run ball and seemed determined to eat it. If not for some phenomenal defense played by the baby's caretaker, that baby would have eaten that dinger.

The Phillies would win the game 6-5 thanks to a walk-off single by Andrew Knapp.
