Perhaps Logan Morrison was distracted by the bubble.
That's one possible explanation for why Morrison would have tried taking an extra base against Royals left fielder Alex Gordon during Tuesday night's game.
Morrison just missed a home run off Ian Kennedy in the bottom of the second inning. Gordon thought he might have a chance to catch the ball but it ricocheted off the wall and past him.
Gordon chased after the ball as Morrison rounded the bases. While sprinting, Gordon casually blew a bubble. Then he picked up the ball and threw to third in time to get Morrison.
