KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - The Missouri Supreme Court is weighing whether a legal standard that protects sports teams from being sued over fan injuries caused by in-game events should also apply to those caused by mascots or other team personnel.

The court's ruling on John Coomer's lawsuit against the Kansas City Royals could affect how major sports teams engage their fans during games.

Coomer says he was hit in the eye by a foil-wrapped hot dog thrown by the Royals' mascot four years ago. The Kansas man says he's had to endure two eye surgeries and that his vision was permanently damaged.

The team argues that it should be protected by the so-called "baseball rule." That legal standard holds that fans assume the risk of being struck by foul balls or stray pucks at games.

Cardinals beat Royals 6-3

 KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Yadier Molina homered and drove in four runs to help the St. Louis Cardinals beat the slumping Kansas City Royals 6-3 on Monday.

 

   Molina hit a two-run homer in the first, doubled home a run in the third and his sacrifice fly in the fourth scored Pete Kozma.

 

   While the Cardinals own the best road record, 19-9, in the majors, the Royals dropped their ninth straight home game - one shy of the franchise record set last year.

 

   The anticipated pitcher's duel between Adam Wanwright and James Shields failed to materialize.

 

   Wainwright (7-3), who had given up 12 hits in 22 1-3 innings in his previous three starts, allowed 12 hits, the most he has allowed in a game since Sept. 14, 2010 against the Chicago Cubs.

 

   Shields (2-6) yielded nine hits and season-highs of six runs and five walks in six innings to lose his fourth straight start.
