Reds fan catches back-to-back homers

Apparently, lightning does strike twice -- at least for 20-year-old Reds fan Caleb Lloyd.

Lloyd caught Mike Leake and Zack Cozart's back-to-back home run balls in the fourth inning Monday night at Great American Ballpark, then joined the Reds broadcast team to discuss his good fortune.

"I was blessed to catch both of them," the Cincinnati native said. "I couldn't believe. Right now, I can't believe it's happened. It's some kind of dream."

Lloyd returned the Leake ball to the Reds -- it was the starter's first career homer -- and gave the Cozart ball to a friend whose uncle had supplied their tickets.

"I'm hoping to be on the next flight to Leno in New York City, or maybe out to Los Angeles," he joked after the game.

We just hope Caleb picked up a few lottery tickets on the way home.
