Tanner English's circus catch No. 2 on SportsCenter list

CHAPEL HILL, NC (WIS) -

Gamecocks outfielder Tanner English received props from the guys on SportsCenter for what basically can be called a circus catch during the game against the UNC Tar Heels.

At the top of the 9th inning in Chapel Hill, UNC hitter Skye Bolt makes a big hit off pitcher Jordan Montgomery toward deep left center field, but English dives to make the catch, somersaults forward, and comes up with the ball still in his glove.

"In any language, that's a phenomenal catch," said the announcer.

"Jordan Montgomery is going to have to buy him dinner tonight," said the other announcer.

The play was featured on SportsCenter's Top 10 plays list at number two.

The catch would help the Gamecocks put a cap on their 8-0 victory against the Tar Heels.

The Gamecocks play the Tar Heels for a ticket to the College World Series Tuesday at 12 p.m.
