Kansas City Police are investigating the shooting of a Cleveland Indians pitcher after last night’s game at Kauffman Stadium. Indians’ pitcher Kyle Denney was shot in the right calf while riding on the team’s chartered bus as it was traveling to KCI Airport. According to players, the shot was fired into the side of one of the Indians’ two buses while it was on a ramp between 435 and I-70, grazing outfielder Ryan Ludwick before lodging into Denney’s leg. The bullet did not go very deep and was immediately removed by Indian’ trainers on the bus. The injury is not considered serious, but it could have been. Denney, who is a rookie, was wearing a wig, cheerleader outfit and go-go boots as a part of an initiation ritual. The bullet was slowed when it hit the boot and police say it prevented the injury from being more serious. The right-handed pitcher was treated at a hospital and spent the night in an area hospital. He’s expected to rejoin the team later today in Minnesota… Denney started the game and pitched four innings as the Indians topped the Royals 5-2. It was Kansas City’s 101st loss of the season, which set a team record for defeats in one season. The Royals wasted a 10-hit performance by stranding 11 runners on base. Mike Wood got the loss by allowing all five Cleveland runs and dropped to 3-8.
