Crawford’s 11th-inning homer lifts Dodgers
Question of the Day
Gordon drove in two runs, scored twice, contributed a defensive gem at second base and stole three bases to increase his total to 19, most in the majors. He’s 8 for 11 in the series to hike his average to .357.
“He’s hitting .350, he’s stealing bags, he’s playing good defense,” manager Don Mattingly said. “You can’t really ask a whole lot more.”
Gordon became the first Dodgers player since at least 1914 to have five or more hits and three or more stolen bases in a game, according to STATS. The last major league player to do it was Jimmy Rollins of the Phillies in 2008.
“I’m just trying to help us win any way possible,” Gordon said.
Crawford echoed that sentiment. He was held out of the starting lineup because he was batting .185, and said the chance to circle the bases in the 11th was a “wonderful feeling.”
“When something like that happens, it uplifts you,” he said. “It’s a big lift for me, somebody looking for anything positive to get through the next day. To come through with a big hit like that and win the game, it’s definitely encouraging.”
The Marlins lost even though they tied a franchise record at Marlins Park with three home runs. They erased a 7-2 sixth-inning deficit but left the bases loaded in the eighth and ninth, and stranded a runner at third in the 10th.
“We get a hit in any of those situations, and it’s over,” manager Mike Redmond said.
Juan Uribe walked to start the 11th against Carlos Marmol (0-2), and with one out Crawford hit his first homer.
“Hopefully it’s something that springboards him,” Mattingly said. “That’s a big hit.”
Marmol said he made a mistake by throwing the pitch down the middle.
“He hit it far,” Marmol said. “I feel bad because the team played well.”
