Robbing a homer to end a game isn't supposed to be as easy as Alex Gordon made it look
With thousands of eyes on you during a game, watching your every move, not to mention thousands more watching the broadcast, your style is everything.
The Royals beat the White Sox on Sunday, 14-6, to win the weekend series at Guaranteed Rate Field. It wasn't a very close game, as the final score would indicate, and yet it ended with a bang thanks to the outfield exploits of Royals star
With two outs in the bottom of the ninth,
Gordon made that look pretty easy, and he told MLB.com's Jeffrey Flanagan after the game that, yup, it felt easy too:
"Something like that just happens kind of quick. You really don't have time to think about it. I just took a good route to it and had a clean jump. It felt pretty easy. That's all I can really say about that."
As for Mr. Delmonico, playing in the 12th game of his young career, he'll have to try again for his second career homer. Preferably on a day Gordon isn't out there.
