The Royals really, really like each other
A crowd of Kansas City Royals nearly reached home plate before Alex Gordon did last night. He was the winning run — brought home on a sacrifice fly by Jeff Francoeur — in a contest with the Baltimore Orioles that once again was decided in the bottom of the ninth.
The mob briefly engulfed him before swarming around Francoeur, who was then tackled by Gordon and summarily pummeled. The Royals’ right fielder emerged from the celebration with a bloodied nose and a big grin.
