Kansas City Royals outfielder Michael A. Taylor...

SEATTLE, WASHINGTON - APRIL 24: Michael A. Taylor #2 of the Kansas City Royals runs to first base against the Seattle Mariners during the eleventh inning at T-Mobile Park on April 24, 2022 in Seattle, Washington.

SALT LAKE CITY – Royals centerfielder Michael A. Taylor scaled the wall to rob Cardinals catcher Andrew Knizner of a home run.

The Cardinals hosted the Royals in an interleague, interstate matchup at Busch Stadium in St. Louis, MO on Monday, May 2.

Taylor, in his eighth season as a big leaguer and second with Kansas City, sprinted to the deepest part of the ball park after Knizner roped a 1-2 pitch to deep center field. After finding the wall with his hand as he tracked the ball, Taylor planted his right foot about halfway up the nine foot wall and propelled himself high enough to make the highlight reel catch.

The play not only robbed Knizner of his fifth career home run, but it ended the fifth inning with the Cardinals hanging on to a 1-0 lead.
