Trivia Fact: Alex Gordon’s two-homer game on Saturday was KC’s 14th against Baltimore. Others to accomplish the feat include Hall of Famers Harmon Killebrew (May 23, 1975) and George Brett (May 28, 1979). Danny Tartabull is the lone player to do it twice (August 4, 1990 and June 12, 1991). Mark Teahen was the last before Gordon (July 25, 2006).
