Sixth-inning pitch breaks Santiago's hand
Santiago left the game after he was hit by a pitch from Geoff Geary in the sixth inning. He hit a three-run homer in the first inning, and is hitting .274 with six homers and 23 RBI in his first season with Kansas City.
"It cracked pretty good," Santiago said. "It's a hard thing to go through right now, but there's nothing I can do."
"He's played really well for us. It's a big loss," Royals manager Tony Pena said.
