Detroit Tigers first baseman Prince Fielder collided with Kansas City Royals batter Mike Moustakas on a grounder to first base during Wednesday night's game at Kaufmann Stadium.
In the bottom of the sixth, Moustakas hit a chopper towards first base to Fielder, who was about 15 feet off the bag but decided to make the play himself. That led to a race to the bag between Fielder and Moustakas, and Fielder got there first. Moustakas was running hard but took the worst of the impact from the collision with Fielder, as it looked as if Moustakas had hit a brick wall. Moustakas grabbed Fielder as he was falling down and ended up taking Fielder down with him.
Fortunately, both Moustakas and Fielder were OK afterwards, and they both got a big laugh out of it.

It won't happen this year, but at some point in the next year or two, the Royals almost surely will break their franchise record for most Gold Glove winners on the same team.
The Royals three times have had two Gold Glovers on the same team, the last coming in 1989 when Bret Saberhagen and Bob Boone each won the award.
And here's another strong possibility: The Royals...
Cabrera dogged it out of the batter's box, allowing Alcides Escobar to jump, double clutch and still throw to first in time for a double play out. Continue reading →
69-62, 2nd place, 3 games behind CWS, 3 games behind WC.
Well, after getting swept by KC while the White Sox lost 3 out of 4 to the Orioles certainly has dampened everyone’s spirits, there is still a lot of baseball left, and the Tigers could very well find themselves tied for first place on Sunday night. Isn’t this why we love baseball? So rather than focus on the negatives...
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Bruce Chen allowed four hits over a season-high eight innings, and Eric Hosmer's infield single in the fourth drove in the only run in the Kansas City Royals' 1-0 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Wednesday night.
The last time Chen (10-10) lasted eight innings was last September, in his final two starts of the year. The veteran left-hander hadn...
Wil Myers hits the ball very far, very often. As one of the most complete minor league hitters in baseball, it is almost astonishing that he is yet to crack the line-up of the Royals. He is one of the most exciting, major-league ready talents still yet to accrue service time, a major boon for the system. However, the system’s top arms have either struggled or been hurt, and a...
Our friends at GIFULMINATION were at it again tonight catching this hilarious moment of Kansas City Royals pitcher Aaron Crow giving the universal ******* motion while in the bullpen. The Royals haven’t been good in years so being third in the division obviously is having its benefits for the team.
I just wonder if he’s explaining what someone did to him or what he did to someone else?
There have been two players named Betancourt throughout the course of major-league history, and it just so happens that both of them are current. Far more has been written about Yuniesky Betancourt than Rafael Betancourt, even though Rafael has been around longer, and even though Yuniesky is terrible. But then, that’s kind of the reason. Yuniesky wasn’t supposed to be terrible...

(AP) -- The Kansas City Royals have spent the last month looking like a team that's poised to give contenders fits down the stretch.
That's just what the woeful Minnesota Twins have done to them.
The Royals can finish August with the AL Central's best record if they can finally figure out the visiting Twins on Friday night and record a season high-tying fourth straight...
