On Tuesday night, the Oakland Athletics hosted the Houston Astros.
In the early innings of the game, Astros pitcher Collin McHugh pulled off one of the most-impressive moves of the season.
A hard-hit line drive nearly caught McHugh on the jaw, but he used a move straight out of the Matrix to dodge the ball.
If he didn’t get out of the way of this one, he likely would have lost a few teeth on the night.

Even the announcers are amazed McHugh was able to get out of the way.
Luckily, McHugh’s reflexes were on point tonight so he avoided devastating injury.
McHugh has been solid for the Astros tonight. He has three strikeouts with no walks and only two hits allowed on the night.
The 31-year-old right-hander sits at 2-1 on the season and sports an ERA of just 2.25 after shutting out the Athletics through the first three innings of play.
Houston holds a 3-0 lead over Oakland in the top of the fourth inning.
