Trot Times for April 8, 2015

It’s Adrian Gonzalez’s world and we’re just living in it. Let’s get right to those A-Gon trots!

Home Run of the Day: Adrian Gonzalez #3, Los Angeles Dodgers – 25.05 seconds [video]
Gonzalez was hot enough entering last night’s game, having cranked out a home run in each of the first two games of the year, but that was only the start. Facing the Padres at Dodger Stadium, Gonzalez cranked out three more home runs last night. This third blast came in only the fifth inning, which gave us all a little hope for the elusive four-homer night. It didn’t happen, but let’s not ride the guy too hard about that. Five home runs in three games is pretty good itself.

Slowest Trot: Adrian Gonzalez #1, Los Angeles Dodgers – 26.26 seconds [video]
What, did you expect someone else?! The slowest non-Gonzalez trot of the night came from Atlanta’s A.J. Pierzynski, who strolled home in 25.25 seconds last night.

Quickest Trot: Kyle Seager, Seattle Mariners – 18.63 seconds [video]
One of only three trots on Wednesday to clock in under 20-seconds. Seager beat out Will Middlebrooks and Corey Dickerson for the day’s quickest trot,
