Clemson, SC—It hasn’t taken long for former Clemson All-American Tyler Colvin to make a name for himself with the Chicago Cubs. Colvin, who played at Clemson from 2004-2006, made the Play of the Day on on Tuesday night in the Cubs 7-2 win at Milwaukee. It also ranked as the number-six Play of the Day in sports on ESPN.

In the ninth inning, the Brewers Ryan Braun, an All-Star, drove the ball to centerfield where Colvin went back to the wall, leaped over the fence and denied Braun his 30th home run of the season. See the catch here

Colvin also had a hit and a run scored for the Cubs on Tuesday. He made his Major League debut on Monday night for the Cubs and was also one-for-three at the plate in a Cubs victory.

Colvin was a first-team All-America outfielder at Clemson in 2006 when he batted .356 and led the Tigers to the College World Series. He hit 13 home runs that year, including a walk-off grand slam in the NCAA regional against Oral Roberts. He was the number-13 selection of the Major League draft that June by the Cubs.
