Alex Gordon Catch: Royals Outfielder Crashes Into Wall, Holds Onto Ball Against Tigers (VIDEO)

Somehow, Royals outfielder Alex Gordon was able to hang onto the ball after crashing into the wall in left field for an amazing catch against the Tigers on Sunday.

Gordon immediately fell backwards to the ground, but made the grab and robbed Detroit's Victor Martinez of extra bases.

"I just made it look like I did," Gordon said after Detroit's 6-3 win, via Dick Kaegel of MLB.com "I was just making sure I had it in my glove and didn't drop it."

Gordon was unhurt and hit a double in his next at-bat.
