Notes: Although Gordon did a lot of whiffing in his sombrero on Wednesday, he did salvage some respect by doubling in the fifth.  The hit saved the rejuvenated slugger from falling victim to the platinum sombrero—or as a reader suggested it be called, “The Mongolian War Helmet,”—a feat yet to occur this season.  One thing is certain: Gordon was involved in one hell of a game of just a tip on Wednesday.
