Double game between Royals and White Sox
White Sox first baseman José Abreu and Royals hitter Hunter Dozier suffered a spectacular collision that forced them to leave the field before the end of the second inning of the first game of a doubleheader, which won Kansas City 6-1 against Chicago, and snapped a losing streak of 11 consecutive losses. Abreu was trying to catch a fly from Dozier, with whom he ended up crashing on the line between home and home. After hitting the balloon in the second inning, Dozier ran out of the batter’s box head down, skimming past Cuban catcher Yasmani Grandal. Dozier took a few more steps looking at the ground and then he collided heavily with Abreu who had run from the start and was looking up, in search of capturing the ball, which was already in the hands of his compatriot Grandal. Both players fell to the ground, a few feet from home plate. Grandal caught the ball to make the out. Immediately, kinesiologists and doctors entered the field. After a few minutes, Abreu got up and left the diamond walking on his own. However, the AL Most Valuable Player (MVP) looked stunned, arms resting on the shoulders of two staff members. The Cuban suffered a bruise on his face and a cut, as well as a bruise on his left knee. Tests for a concussion were negative and how you progress each day will be analyzed. Meanwhile, Dozier suffered a quadriceps contusion and neck discomfort. Your condition will also be reviewed day by day.
