CHICAGO — On a windy day at Wrigley Field Albert Almora Jr. was able to pull off one of his signature web gems upon tracking down a tricky fly ball. Almora made a leaping grab while colliding with the wall in center field on Sunday.

Ian Happ made a similar catch earlier in the game, but Almora added elevation to his. Jumping up and snagging a well-hit ball, Almora was cheered on by Cubs reliever Jeremy Jeffress. The catch came in the ninth inning of the Cubs' 9-1 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers.
