Highlight Of The Week: Gordon, Gonzalez Turn Double Play
The Los Angeles Dodgers capitalized on multiple errors committed by the New York Mets in Friday’s game to walk away with an easy win.
Saturday presented a different challenge for the Dodgers as Zack Greinke took the mound for the first time since his elbow issues were made public. Greinke found himself in the fifth inning with the Dodgers leading by a run and the Mets threatening with runners on the corners.
Greinke induced David Wright into a double play that required a leaping throw over to first base from Dee Gordon and an outstretched Adrian Gonzalez with his left foot barely making contact with the base.
Mets manager Terry Collins made his way onto the field but decided against asking for a review after receiving a thumbs-down from his dugout. The play prevented the tying run from scoring and the Dodgers went on to win the game, 7-4.
Along with making the nice defensive play, Gonzalez added a three-run home run and collected five RBIs in the win.
