Watch the Cubs' Albert Almora Jr. absolutely rob the Giants' Brandon Belt

Cubs center field Albert Almora Jr. officially entered the catch of the year sweepstakes Monday night with a tremendous diving grab in center field robbing the Giants Brandon Belt of extra bases in the first inning.

Almora absolutely lays out to make this catch after tracking the ball deep into right-center:

Belt got his revenge later in the game by putting a ball where Almora couldnt reach it: over the outfield wall in the fifth inning to give the Giants a 5-0 lead. San Francisco held on for a 6-4 win, but Almora held on for one amazing catch.
