Oklahoma State's Ryan Sluder has the reputation of being an excellent defender, and he sure lived up to it on Monday night.

The center fielder pulled off an incredible diving catch to rob Arizona's Cody Ramer of a first-inning leadoff hit in Omaha at the College World Series.

Take a look at the stellar grab:

Amazing. With how dangerous Arizona's lineup is, a leadoff hit for the Wildcats could have spelled trouble for Oklahoma State. Instead, thanks in large part to Sluder, the Cowboys escaped the first inning unscathed.
