Alex Gordon: ‘Play the game hard, and see what happens’

If you’re looking for a turning point in this game, you could do a lot worse than Howie Kendrick’s error in the ninth inning. Gordon was on first base when Salvador Perez hit what looked like a sure double-play ball. Erick Aybar threw the ball to Howie Kendrick and the Angels second baseman turned his head too soon. If you knew Alex Gordon was coming down the line to take you out, wouldn’t you want to know exactly where he was?
