ORIOLES EDGE ROYALS IN NINTH Craig Gentry singled home the winning run with two outs in the ninth inning in Baltimore, and the Orioles cooled off the Kansas City Royals, 2-1.
TOP PROSPECT INJURIES KNEE The White Sox prospect Yoan Moncada hurt his right knee in a frightening collision with right fielder Willy Garcia in the sixth inning of Chicago’s game against Toronto. Moncada and Garcia were chasing Darwin Barney’s bases-loaded blooper into shallow right field when Moncada, the second baseman, kneed a sliding Garcia in the head. The ball trickled out of Garcia’s glove for a three-run double.
X-rays on Moncada, who is widely regarded as one of baseball’s top prospects, were negative, and the team says he is day to day with a bruised right knee. Garcia has a head contusion and will be evaluated again Tuesday morning.
