The Los Angeles Dodgers undoubtedly had a rough week aside from the dominant return of Clayton Kershaw on Tuesday. Heading into Sunday, the Dodgers were 2-3 in their last five games as they fell further behind in the NL West. After losing the first two of a four-game series against the San Francisco Giants, the team needed a spark to get them back on their feet and to turn their unimpressive play around. In Saturday’s 6-2 win over the Giants, Dee Gordon was set on taking the Dodgers out of their slump from his very first swing.

The Dodgers second baseman swung at the first pitch he saw and began the bottom of the first with a single to right. With Yasiel Puig at the plate, Gordon easily stole second for his first stolen base of the game. As Puig struck out and Hanley Ramirez came to the plate, the speedster proceeded to steal third for his 23rd stolen base of the season.

To leadoff the sixth, Gordon drew a walk off of Matt Cain and, not surprisingly, again stole second base. As he advanced to third on Puig’s fly ball, the 26-year-old scored the first run of the game for the Dodgers as they managed to tie the game in the sixth. Going into the seventh, Gordon hit an RBI double that scored Drew Butera to give the Dodgers a lead.
