Nats' Kevin Frandsen makes ridiculous, no-look, behind-the-back, run-preventing grab

This play, from Tuesday's Nationals-Astros game, is something you definitely don't see every day.

With two outs and a man at first, Houston catcher Jason Castro launched a double deep to left field -- well over the head of Washington outfielder Kevin Frandsen.

Frandsen, undeterred, played the ball perfectly off the wall and managed to throw it back to the infield, preventing a run from scoring.

Check out how he did it:

Yup, that's a no-look, behind-the-back snare. What's even more amazing is that Frandsen is actually an infielder, appearing in the outfield only rarely during his eight-year career.

Both baserunners wound up scoring later in the inning, but that doesn't make Frandsen's play any less insane.

Here it is one more time, just for posterity:

Because he's a true man of the people, Frandsen took his talents to Twitter to make an ever-relevant reference to your favorite '90s children's film about losing a Babe Ruth-autographed baseball to a dog/mammoth beast:
