Watch: Dee Gordon doubles on ground ball to second base

Saturday April 26th, 2014

The headline says it all. With the bases empty and two outs in the bottom of the third inning Friday night, Dodgers second baseman Dee Gordon doubled on a ground ball to second against the Rockies (GIF courtesy Chad Moriyama).

Gordon, who is hitting .356/.392/.479 on the season with 12 stolen bases in 13 attempts, reached out and hooked a 1-2 pitch from Colorado starter Jordan Lyles, hitting a bouncing ground ball into the second base hole. Rockies second baseman DJ LeMahieu ranged over and knocked the ball down, but didn't come up with it and overran the ball as it rolled back onto the infield dirt.
