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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
