Royals OF Gordon leaves after getting hit by pitch

Kansas City outfielder Alex Gordon has left Sunday’s game

against Colorado after getting hit by a pitch on the left knee.

Gordon was batting in the sixth inning when Rockies reliever

Matt Belisle’s slider ran in. Gordon buckled and fell to the

ground, and was down for several minutes before limping to the

dugout.

Gordon was replaced by Mitch Maier.
