A pickoff throw to Albert Pujols bounced, but good samaritan Dee Gordon picked it up for him

Dee Gordon knows not to take Spring Training games too seriously. So, when a pickoff throw from the Angels' Keynan Middleton began to get away from Albert Pujols with Gordon on first base after a fifth-inning single on Saturday, he gave Pujols some help:

It doesn't count as an assist in the box score, but Pujols appreciated the gesture anyway.
Perhaps the positive karma helped the Mariners, as they went on to win, 7-0. Who says good deeds don't go unrewarded?
