It took Nick Ahmed just 15.43 seconds to go home to home on an inside-the-park homer -- the season's fastest

The D-backs didn't waste any time getting on the board during Wednesday's game with the Dodgers in Los Angeles, thanks to one swing by Nick Ahmed. With one out in the first inning, he crushed a fly ball to deep center field. 
Enrique Hernández ranged back but misjudged the fly ball, which bounced off the very top of the wall and rolled ... giving Ahmed ample time to run. And run, he did, all the way around the bases, sliding in ahead of the throw at the plate for an inside-the-park homer: 

If that seems fast, it's because it was. In fact, Ahmed went home to home in a Statcast-reported 15.43 seconds, good for the fastest such time so far this season.
Yasiel Puig had a pretty great reaction to the relay throw nearly nabbing Ahmed at the plate, a good final sequence of this play: 

So ... more like Quick Ahmed, right?
