Royals Withstand Rain, Edge Indians


The Kansas City Royals waited out a lengthy rain delay, and then another delay when the stadium lights went out. They also had to watch outfielder Alex Gordon walk off with a scary head injury in the sixth inning. Gordon was eventually helped from the field by Royals trainer Nick Kenney. The team said he had a possible concussion and a bruised right hip, and he will be evaluated again on Thursday.

Eric Hosmer hit a go-ahead homer in the seventh inning, and the Royals held on to beat the Cleveland Indians 6-5 on a wild Wednesday night at Kauffman Stadium.

Jeremy Guthrie had a shaky outing but picked up the no decision by tossing six and a third innings, giving up five runs on five hits and striking out three Indians. Scott Kazmir for the Indians pitched five innings giving up three runs on six hits and striking out three.

The rubber match of the series is this afternoon (Thursday) with the first pitch scheduled for 1:10pm and the game can be heard on Sports Radio 1350 KMAN
