Who Wants To See Dee Gordon Score The Winning Run From First On a Bunt?

Okay, a bunt and an error, but still. We may never know if Dee Gordon can mold that raw talent into a real baseball player, and he’s got just a .696 OPS to start his first year at ABQ, but what we do know is that Gordon brings excitement wherever he goes. No, really; check out how he scored the winning run from first base in a 6-6 tie on Saturday night. (video link h/t commenter Dave).

Here’s Christopher Jackson’s recap of the play:

Dee Gordon is fast. Ridiculously, unbelievably fast.

Gordon’s blinding speed proved to be the difference in the ninth inning as he drew a leadoff walk and scored from first base on an error to give the Albuquerque Isotopes a 7-6 victory over the Memphis Redbirds at Isotopes Park on Saturday night.

Victor Marte (0-2) walked Gordon on four pitches to lead off the ninth.

Trent Oeltjen and laid down a sacrifice bunt, but the throw from Marte came out of first baseman Nick Stavinoha‘s glove and bounced into right field.

Gordon whipped around second and was waved in by manager Lorenzo Bundy. He beat the throw home by inches.

The 22-year-old prospect said only one throught was going through his mind as he raced in.

“I’d better score because Lo had everything on the line,” Gordon said. “So I wanted to make sure my manager made the right decision. I wanted to score so we could win.”
