Jonny Gomes makes unassisted double play from left field (Video)

Jonny-Gomes-unassisted-double-playThe Boston Red Sox defeated the Seattle Mariners in extra innings on Wednesday night, and if not for an incredible play by Jonny Gomes late in the game the outcome may have been reversed.

Gomes, who entered the game as a pinch hitter in the 13th inning, made an incredibly rare unassisted double play in left field to save the game in the 15th. The Mariners had runners on first and second with one out when outfielder Michael Saunders slashed a sinking line drive to left. Gomes made a great diving catch and then stood up and jogged to second to double off Raul Ibanez.

Gomes certainly isn’t the most talented player on Boston’s roster, but he has been incredibly clutch this season. He has three pinch-hit homers — including a walk-off bomb — and consistently comes up with plays when the Red Sox need them. Thursday night was a perfect example, and it allowed the Sox to take back first place in the AL East from the Tampa Bay Rays.
