Today in taking flight, and everything else you need to know.

Air Billy: Cincinnati outfielder Billy Hamilton proved he's got some major ups, vaulting through the air to make an incredible flying catch in the Reds in what looked like a solid win before the Mets went ahead and scored four runs in the seventh to steal the game, 4-3.

Heeeeere's Johnny: Johnny "The Predator" Cueto earned his 6 year, $130 million contract with the San Francisco Giants on Tuesday night, hurling a brilliant 7-hit shutout against the San Diego Padres for a 1-0 win.

Cutch Hitting: If Cueto was Tuesday's standout defensive player, then the Pittsburgh Pirates' Andrew McCutchen made a claim to the offensive title, as he served up three home runs—in the first, second, and sixth innings—in a 9-4 win over the Rockies at Coors Field.

A Shot at Redemption: On the surface, 180 Recovery Project in Lancashire, United Kingdom, looks a lot like your typical CrossFit gym (box, sorry). There's just one exception: All the lifters there are former addicts, and they've turned to power cleans and box jumps to forge a new life for themselves. []

Hemsworth Gonna Hemsworth: Oh Chris, you slay us—and, apparently, the ladies of the Ghostbusters remake.
