Alex Gordon was the hero Tuesday going 2-for-4 with a two run home run in the bottom of the ninth inning to give the Royals a 2-1 victory over the Twins.
Gordon has put together yet another solid season and again proved his worth on Tuesday night. He does a little bit of everything and won't hurt you anywhere. He is a fantastic option in the outfield the rest of the way.ANALYST: David Kerr
Carl Crawford exited Monday night's game with tightness in his right side.
It was only a matter of time before the glass-made Crawford cracked in some capacity. It's unknown whether or not he'll need a DL stint to rid him of the tightness, but if he does Scott Van Slyke and Alex Guerrero are likely to fill in for him. Guerrero has been among the hottest hitters in baseball, in a limited role, and would become mixed league relevant if/when he finds himself in the lineup. Don Mattingly, however, doesn't appear to be Guerrero's biggest fan. Let's hope he's not pigeon-holed to pinch-hitting duties. Analysis: Spencer Silva
