Gio Gonzalez turns to twitter for a date

Look at that smile, those dreamy eyes. Step right up, ladies.

Gio has only been in D.C. for a couple of months now and probably hasn’t had much time to meet women, so, heck, why not twitter. Still, one of his followers has a better idea. The gala is the Nationals sponsored Dream Gala 2012 and includes a silent auction, among other things.

There. Everybody wins.

Last night Jason Kipnis led the Indians to victory over the Chicago White Sox via a walkoff grand slam. Such a beast is a pretty special, but lately they’ve been surprisingly common. Indeed, Kipnis’ walkoff slam was the third one in the space of a week.

Francisco Mejia of the Padres hit a walkoff salami on Sunday afternoon to lead San Diego over the Texas Rangers. Sal Perez of the Royals did the deed on Friday against the Twins.

As Anthony Castrovince of MLB.com tweeted this morning, there were only two walkoff grand slams in the entire 2016 season. Having three in a week is pretty darn cool, eh?
