Video: Dee Gordon’s 13.9-second merry-go-round
By Jon Weisman
The Dodgervision production team gave us Dee Gordon’s time around the bases on this third-inning jaunt: 13.9 seconds, or faster than any Major Leaguer has been clocked this decade by Tater Trot Tracker.
That alone would have made it a happy night for Gordon, but he added three singles and two runs tonight against Colorado for the Dodgers. It was the third time in his career Gordon has had at least four hits, along with one game in 2011 and his five-hit game earlier this year. And he had that all done by the sixth inning.
Gordon, who entered play tonight with a season-low .321 on-base percentage, quickly bumped that up to .333 after walking in his fifth at-bat of the evening.
