Injuries and inside-the-parkers

It’s not every day that we see an inside-the-park home run, but Jarrod Dyson managed to pull one off a couple nights ago against the Tampa Bay Rays.  In some ways, it was kind of a bittersweet moment, because the reason Dyson entered the game in the first place was due to an injury to Alex Gordon that will keep Gordon out of the Royals lineup for the next two months.

You get kind of a funny pit in your stomach when you see such a great player go down like that.  It was one of those moments that had me feeling like this:

Of course, if you’re Dyson, this is an excellent time to do things to help solidify your position in the lineup, and an inside-the-park home run is a good way to make a statement.  It takes him all of fourteen seconds to round the bases in this awesome display of speed.

So congratulations to Dyson and the Royals as they continue to expand their lead in the AL Central!  Fingers crossed that it continues even after the All-Star break.
