Since assuming the leadoff spot on May 27, Alex Gordon is hitting .352 with 16 RBIs and 25 walks. "Anytime you're in a certain spot and you're stuck there for a while, you kind of get comfortable," Gordon said. "That's just kind of how it's been lately." Gordon went 3-for-5 with an RBI on Saturday. Twins: Morneau placed on paternity leave
The Twins placed first baseman Justin Morneau on the paternity list Saturday after his wife, Krista, gave birth to the couple's second child, a boy. Morneau has a maximum of three days to be away from the team. In a corresponding move, the Twins recalled Chris Parmelee from Triple-A Rochester. Worth noting
In his 14th game of the year, Royals center fielder Lorenzo Cain went 3-for-4 with three RBIs, his second three-hit game of the season and his third career game with three RBIs.
