Trea Turner sped home from first and almost broke Dodgers Twitter


When ex-Nationals slugger Trea Turner rounded second base to find a hiccup in the Los Angeles Angels' fielding game on Sunday afternoon, his jets reached hyper speed. 

Turner covered more ground than the ball en route to scoring all the way from first base in the Dodgers' 8-2 win over their local rivals. It was reminiscent of a few of the 444 runs he scored in six-and-a-half seasons with Washington.

But on Sunday, it was the first real display of Turner's vintage speed since getting traded at the MLB Trade Deadline on July 30. 

Scoring from first off an infield single is more than impressive. It's jaw-dropping. Dodgers Twitter reacted accordingly. 

Perhaps the best response, though, came from someone who probably knows plenty about the local traffic around Turner's new home. 

SportsNet LA perfectly used Turner's own facial expressions to depict how the fans at Dodgers Stadium felt. 

Whether it's the Flash superhero or even Forrest Gump, it's plausible Dodgers third base coach Dino Ebel was yelling something more aligned with the latter. Something sort of like, "Run, Trea, run!"
