Along with solidifying second base for the Dodgers, Gordon has also been a force in the leadoff spot. He’s currently hitting .284 with a .333 on-base percentage and leads the Majors in stolen bases with 36. Gordon has seen a bit of a revolving door as to who’s hitting behind him as Mattingly has adjusted due to injuries.
In the three-game series against the Colorado Rockies, Hanley Ramirez hit behind Gordon. The Dodger second baseman set the table for Ramirez from the outset, hitting a leadoff triple in the first inning of Friday’s game.
Gordon followed with another triple in the fifth inning, this time scoring Hyun-Jin Ryu and giving the Dodgers a 3-0 lead. Gordon collected two more RBIs in the sixth with a single to right center that scored Justin Turner and Drew Butera.
The 26-year-old finished the game 3-for-4 with two triples, one single, three RBIs, a stolen base, walk and two runs scored.
