Austin Jackson gets to so many balls in centerfield because he reads the ball so well off the bat. Normally. On Monday night at Fenway Park, with a slight breeze carrying toward the outfield, Jackson watched a deep fly ball arc toward the centerfield wall in the first inning. As soon as Carl Crawford hit it, Jackson figured he had a chance to catch it. Until it hit high off the Green Monster and bounced back into the outfield over Jackson, who was by then standing too close to the wall to corral the ricochet.
