WATCH: Jason Kipnis hits inside-the-park HR for 100th career round tripper

Cleveland Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis hit a ball on Sunday that nearly left the yard for his 100th career home run but didn’t quite make it. Thanks to some good hustle, though, he got it anyway.

Kansas City Royals right fielder Alex Gordon leapt for the ball, but couldn’t quite corral it and the ball bounced away from him. Kipnis, who never stopped running on the play, eventually making it around the bases for a stand-up, inside-the-park home run.

It capped a fantastic game for Kipnis. On the day, the Cleveland keystone went 4-for-5 with three runs scored and four RBI to help his team snap a four-game losing streak.
