3) Eric Hosmer‘s Mini Slump Is Over

Lost in the rebirth of the Kansas Cit Royals offense has been first baseman Eric Hosmer’s 2-25 slide since the second game of the double-header against Boston on May 18. Hoz put an end to that cold string Friday night.

Hosmer slapped an RBI single ground out in the first inning, a leadoff single in the fourth, a solo home run in the sixth, and topped off his night with a clutch two-out single in the seventh inning that plated two runs. That last hit capped the KC Royals comeback which turned a 5-1 deficit into a 6-5 lead.

Overall, Hosmer finished Friday 3-4, 1 run scored, 1 HR (9), and 4 RBI’s.

Yeah. That’ll play.

When the Kansas City Royals scored 22 runs in three games against Minnesota, Hosmer went 1 for 14. The team has shown they can score without Hosmer. However, with Mike Moustakas lost for the season, the KC Royals will need a strong season from their first baseman to succeed over the long haul.

It was good to see Hosmer get back in the groove Friday night.
