Alex Gordon’s latest highlight-reel catch will sting Mikie Mahtook extra hard.
The Kansas City Royals left fielder robbed his Detroit Tigers counterpart of a home run Monday with a perfectly timed leap over the Comerica Field wall. Mahtook’s drive threatened to reduce the Royals’ lead to 5-3, but Gordon kept the Tigers scoreless with this heroic effort.
Gordon’s catch came one day after Mahtook comically surrendered a home run in one of the worst plays you’ll ever see. Highlight shows undoubtedly will show both plays together, and Mahtook must face another barrage of internet jokes.
