Royals’ Gordon leaves with head injury in sixth inning

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Royals

outfielder Alex Gordon left Wednesday night’s game against the Cleveland

Indians in the sixth inning with a possible concussion after making an

awkward attempt to catch a fly ball.

Gordon landed in a heap on the warning

track and didn’t move while Jason Kipnis rounded the bases for an

inside-the-park, three-run homer that gave the Indians a 3-1 lead.

Royals pitcher Jeremy Guthrie

immediately motioned to the dugout, and trainer Nick Kenney and manager

Ned Yost ran out to check on the Gold Glove outfielder. He limped off

the field and the team reported that Gordon sustained a possible

concussion and a bruised right hip.

Gordon will be evaluated again on Thursday.

David Lough took over for Gordon in

left field. Jarrod Dyson entered the game to play center field and

Lorenzo Cain moved from center to right for the Royals.
