The Miami Marlins got an extra innings 10-9 win over the Tampa Bay Rays off a Christian Yelich walk-off single in the 10th, and they went with a celebration that I don’t think we’ve ever seen in baseball.
During Yelich’s post game interview, instead of a shaving cream pie to the face or a Gatorade bath, Dee Gordon came out and did a surprise dunk on him.
It’s a pretty fantastic celebration as Gordon comes in with a thunderous dunk on a mini hoop held up behind Gordon. Yelich made sure to let Gordon know that he’ll be looking to get him back later.
The win was the Marlins first of the season after getting swept by the Atlanta Braves in their opening series.
