Description: Royals manager Ned Yost made the right decision to move Alex Gordon to the second spot in the order.
Insight: Gordon went 1-for-4 and his one hit was a double that scored Escobar in the sixth inning. He then scored on Eric Hosmer's single, and the Royals won Game 3 of the World Series, 3-2.
 
10/22/2014 10:55:00 AM
Description: Royals left fielder Alex Gordon is a career .357 hitter (10-for-28) against San Francisco's Game 2 starter, Jake Peavy.
Insight: Three of those hits are extra-base hits, including one home run. Gordon also has five RBI against Peavy during his career, and the Royals could use all the help they can get after getting completely dominated in Game 1 of the Fall Classic.
 
10/11/2014 9:06:00 AM
Description: Royals left fielder Alex Gordon went 3-for-4 with a solo home run in the 10th inning to lift Kansas City over Baltimore, 8-6, in Game 1 of the ALCS on Friday.
Insight: Gordon's home run broke a 5-5 tie in the 10th, but the Orioles came back to score in the bottom of the inning, so it was actually Mike Moustakas' two-run blast three at-bats after Gordon's solo shot that won the game. Gordon also had a bases-clearing double in the third on a broke-bat flair down the right field line. He is batting .316 with eight RBI in five postseason games.
 
10/10/2014 9:58:00 AM
Description: Royals left fielder Alex Gordon is just 3-for-13 (.231) against Baltimore Game 1 ALCS starter Chris Tillman, but two of the three hits were home runs.
Insight: Gordon put together another solid season, batting .266 with 19 HR, 74 RBI and 87 runs scored.
 
9/30/2014 11:35:00 AM
Description: Royals left fielder Alex Gordon has a history of strulling against Oakland left-hander Jon Lester, batting just .160 for his career with 10 strikeouts in 26 plate appearances.
Insight: Gordon put together another solid season, batting .266 with 19 HR, 74 RBI and 87 runs scored, but its a tough matchup for him.
 
9/23/2014 10:15:00 PM
Description: Royals left fielder Alex Gordon went 2-for-4 with two RBI and scored two runs as the Royals defeated the Indians, 7-1, on Tuesday.
Insight: Gordon has been struggling a bit lately with just one hit over his last 19 at-bats, so it was nice to see him break out. Overall, Gordon has really slumped in September, hitting just .149/.278/.239 in the month.
 
9/20/2014 9:41:00 AM
Description: Royals left fielder Alex Gordon is a .389 career hitter (14-for-36) with three home runs against Detroit ace Max Scherzer.
Insight: Not many players can say they own a 1.261 OPS versus last year's Cy Young Award winner. Gordon's numbers are down from his 2011-12 days, but he's still a productive outfielder at .268, 19 HR, 70 RBI, 83 runs scored and a favorable matchup.
 
9/15/2014 9:44:00 AM
Description: Royals left fielder Alex Gordon is just a .172 career hitter (5-for-29) versus White Sox left-hander John Danks.
Insight: Gordon has broken out of his slump over the past two days with multi-hit games, but is still batting just .193 over the past four weeks and is in an unfavorable matchup. Avoid him Monday.
 
9/14/2014 9:21:00 AM
Description: Royals left fielder Alex Gordon went 2-for-4 with a RBI-double and scored twice as the Royals beat the Red Sox, 7-1, on Saturday.
Insight: Gordon broke out of his slump as the left fielder came into the game hitless in his last 20 at-bats. He still was getting on base during that stretch though with six walks. Gordon is batting .269 with 19 home runs and 67 RBI this year.
 
Cold9/11/2014 1:13:00 PM
Description: Royals left fielder Alex Gordon is a career .455 hitter (5-for-11) against Red Sox pitcher Clay Buchholz.
Insight: Gordon has also taken Buchholz deep once in his career. The left fielder is hitless in his last 13 at-bats so perhaps this matchup will get Gordon going again. He leads Kansas City with 19 home runs and 66 RBI.
 
Hot9/9/2014 11:55:00 AM
Description: Kansas City left fielder Alex Gordon is a career .412 hitter (14-for-34) with three home runs against Detroit ace Max Scherzer.
Insight: Gordon is putting together another productive season (.274, 19 HR, 66 RBI, 77 runs), but has been cold over the past two weeks , atting just .175 over the past dozen games.
 
Hot8/26/2014 10:51:00 PM
Description: Kansas City left fielder Alex Gordon hit a walk-off two-run homer off Twins closer Glen Perkins Tuesday night.
Insight: The Royals hadn't scored all night until Gordon connected for his 16th homer of the season. He's hit seven balls out of the park in August and is a legitimate MVP candidate. He ranks second in the AL with 5.6 WAR.
 
8/23/2014 10:58:00 PM
Description: Kansas City left fielder Alex Gordon went 2-for-4 with a solo home run against the Rangers on Saturday.
Insight: Gordon's home run came in the first inning and is his 15th of the season. The left fielder is hitting .310 with five home runs in August.
 
Hot8/13/2014 12:40:00 PM
Description: Kansas City left fielder Alex Gordon has batted .333 with eight extra-base hits (3 HR) over his last 28 games, but his matchup Wednesday isn't favorable.
Insight: Gordon has been good against left-handers over the past two years, but he's 6-for-28 (.214) with a .516 OPS against Oakland left-hander Scott Kazmir. Avoid him Wednesday.
 
8/12/2014 10:08:00 AM
Description: Kansas City left fielder Alex Gordon is just a .136 hitter (3-for-22) with eight strikeouts against Oakland left-hander Jon Lester.
Insight: Gordon has been on fire of late, batting .391 with three homers and a 1.019 OPS over the past dozen games, but this matchup should be avoided. Hopefully this one poor matchup won't kill his momentum.
 
Hot8/10/2014 6:00:00 PM
Description: Kansas City left fielder Alex Gordon has homered in three of his last four games.
Insight: Gordon hit zero home runs from June 22 to Aug. 6, a span of 33 games in which he batted .233 with seven RBI, 12 runs and a .600 OPS. He's raised his OPS from .766 to .793 over the last four games.

7/20/2014 12:46:00 PM
Description: Kansas City left fielder Alex Gordon has batted just .118 against Red Sox starter Jon Lester.
