Alex Gordon makes fantastic diving catch for Royals

Detroit Tigers slugger Justin Upton thought he had an extra-base hit on Thursday night, but Kansas City Royals outfielder Alex Gordon had other ideas.

Lorenzo Cain was impressed in center field.

As was pitcher Edinson Volquez.

Gordon's catch in the fourth came one inning after he made a strong throw to third base to nail Jose Iglesias, the second outfield assist of the season for Gordon.

Gordon won four straight Gold Glove Awards in left field from 2011-2014, but saw his streak snapped last year. But if he keeps making plays like on Thursday, he may need to create more space on his mantel.
