That's what made his triple against the Texas Rangers so damn entertaining. That, and the reaction from the Twins bench (Ron Gardenhire chuckling, and Carlos Gomez doing the worst dance/jumping thing I've seen lately) and from the wonderful Twins commentating team of Dick Bremer and Bert Blyleven, which was a combination of surprise, pride, with a liberal dose of humor. As Bert notes in the clip, this is Redmond's first triple in about 6 years, and I believe one of three in his entire career.
It didn't lead to a score--in all ways it was inconsequential. But still--the single most entertaining triple you will see this year, bar none.
Of course it didn't lead to a run, what with there being two outs and Nick Punto batting next.
Really? His name is Punto? He should play in Mexico.
I believe (and I'm too lazy to look it up to confirm it) he played for Italy in the WBC this year.
They could have kept his head-first-sliding-into-first, momentum-killing ass, for all I care.
