Gordon hit a two-run walk-off home run as the Royals defeated the Twins on Tuesday.

Gordon's blast off Glen Perkins ended the Twins' shutout bid and enabled the Royals to maintain their division lead over the Tigers. The 30-year-old's overall numbers (.283 average, 16 homers, 59 RBI, eight stolen bases) wouldn't suggest that he's in the midst of the career-best season, but his 5.6 WAR on the campaign ranks right up there with leading MVP candidates Mike Trout and Giancarlo Stanton.

Gordon went 2-for-4 with a solo homer and two runs scored in a win over the Giants on Saturday night.

The blast was Gordon's 11th of the season, and second in the last three games. He continues to provide excellent value for the Royals with his defense in left field, but Gordon seems to have leveled off with a .276/.352/.428 line, and his days of carrying an OPS north of .800 may be over.

Alex Gordon (wrist) will not participate in the All-Star Game.

Gordon was scratched from the Royals' lineup on Wednesday because of a sprained right wrist. The Royals are holding off on a DL decision for now, but we wouldn't be surprised if he misses the remainder of the first half at the very least.
