Marwin Gonzalez delivered a clutch go-ahead double on a pitch up in his eyes
But true champions never settle, and Houston's utility man extraordinaire was back at it in Game 3 of the ALDS in Cleveland on Monday. With the bases loaded and the score tied at 2 in the top of the seventh, Gonzalez lined a go-ahead double into the left-field corner. Oh, and did we mention that it came on a pitch literally above his shoulders?
In case you were wondering: No, hitters don't do things like that every day.
Marwin Gonzalez double was off a pitch 4.22 feet off the ground... The 2nd highest pitch he's ever gotten a hit off of. pic.twitter.com/4oDzUwO8CA— Daren Willman (@darenw) October 8, 2018
The Astros put up a six-spot in the inning and went on to a series-clinching 11-3 win, so you'll have to tune into the ALCS to see what craziness Gonzalez will get up to next.
