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
Ahmad Brooks (concussion) did not practice on Wednesday.
According to Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee, Brooks is going through the league’s post-concussion protocol this week, which could create more opportunities for Tank Carradine to showcase his skills as an outside pass rusher. The main subs for Brooks on Sunday is rookie Eli Harold, who is ready for the increased workload, however Cory Lemonier and Tank Carradine will be ready to go if needed. Analysis: Dom Murtha
