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.
