Dee Gordon made a long-lasting mark in the Dodgers’ extra-innings defeat of the Marlins on Saturday night in Miami, becoming the only player in recorded franchise history (dating back to at least 1914) to tally five hits and three stolen bases in the same game. He drove in two runs, scored two, and is now batting .357/.387/.464 on the year with 10 RBI and 16 runs in 28 games played. The 26-year-old second baseman is also on pace for 99 steals.
Yasiel Puig contributed a three-run homer in the top of the fourth inning and Carl Crawford slugged a go-ahead two-run blast in the top of the 11th, giving Los Angeles the 9-7 shootout win at the normally-pitcher-friendly Marlins Park. The Dodgers are 18-13 and trail the red-hot Giants by only 1 1/2 games in the National League West standings.
