Eric Hosmer on verge of superstardom with Royals

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Ned Yost has seen this many times before, but it all looks a little different now.

In a matter of seconds, Eric Hosmer’s three-run, first-inning rocket traveled 416 feet, clearing the center-field wall and landing with authority.

Eric Hosmer homer, Jason Vargas pitching sends Kansas City Royals past Cleveland Indians, 5-3

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Eric Hosmer hit a three-run homer, Jason Vargas shut down the Indians for the second straight start, and the Kansas City Royals went on to beat Cleveland 5-3 on Tuesday night. Hosmer also had an RBI triple in the eighth inning, and Alex Gordon drove in another run for the Royals, who bounced back nicely after losing two straight to Detroit over the weekend. Vargas (3-1) only allowed two hits, one a two-run shot by Michael Brantley, over six stingy innings. He struck out five while walking two and was rarely in trouble. read more
