Alex Gordon puts on a show

With two outs in the top of the fourth inning Minnesota designated hitter Josmil Pinto hit an 86-MPH fastball off the wall in left-center field. That part of the wall is 387 feet from home plate, so Pinto made the turn at first and headed for second base. After the game Ned Yost was asked if he was surprised Pinto tried to go to second and Ned said no—it was a legitimate double. You hit a ball off the wall in the gap, that’s a sure double.
