The Royals were all but assured to win Sunday’s game, entering the ninth inning with a 14-6 lead. Center fielder Alex Gordon made certain of it, robbing Nicky Delmonico of a two-run home run by leaping towards the fence in right-center field and snagging the ball.

Gordon didn’t start, but entered the game in the bottom of the seventh as a defensive substitution for Lorenzo Cain. He hit an RBI ground out in his only at-bat.
