Royals outfielder Billy Hamilton collided with the wall in center field attempting to catch a fly ball hit by the Mariners’ Mitch Haniger in the top of the ninth inning on Thursday afternoon. Haniger ended up knocking in two runs with a two-out triple, tying the game at 6-6. Hamilton was clearly in pain as the ball bounced back towards the infield. After being tended to by team trainers, Hamilton was carted off the field.’s Jeffrey Flanagan reports that Hamilton will undergo an MRI on his left knee.

Hamilton went viral on Tuesday, scoring from second base on a sacrifice fly. Though he’s batting a subpar .237/.286/.237 in 42 plate appearances this season, he can still create excitement at a moment’s notice.

NEW YORK — Philadelphia Phillies third baseman Alec Bohm is out of the starting lineup for the second time in three games because of left hamstring tightness.

Bohm had an MRI and the Phillies were awaiting the results. Philadelphia manager Rob Thomson said it was too soon to tell if Bohm might land on the injured list.

Bohm sat out the loss in Atlanta because of the same issue then Philadelphia was off.

Edmundo Sosa was set to start at third against the New York Mets, batting ninth.

Thomson said Bohm felt discomfort after fielding a slow roller. He played the entire game and went 0 for 3 in a 2-0 loss to the Mets.

Bohm is batting .265 with six homers and a team-high 37 RBIs this season. He has a .724 OPS.
