Eric Hosmer blasts extra-innings home run in Game 2 win
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer went 3 for 4 with a walk and a two-run home run in his team's 4-1, 11-inning win over the Angels in Game 2 of the American League Division Series Friday.

The Royals became the first team to have its first three playoff games reach extra innings Friday after a well-pitched game on each side. However, Hosmer came through with the heroics, slugging a ball over the right-field fence in the top of the 11th to break a 1-1 tie and put the Royals up 2-0. Hosmer, who also went 3 for 4 in the wild-card win, has delivered a .545/.667/1.000 line in 11 at-bats over his first three postseason gams. The series moves to Kansas City Sunday.

Eric Hosmer showing some life again
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer went 1 for 3 with a double, a walk and a run scored Monday against the White Sox, which was enough to earn him a mention in my latest blog post chronicling the major happenings in Monday's games.

It doesn't seem like much on its own, but with that performance, he's now batting .321 (9 for 28) with two homers and a 1.049 OPS in his last eight games. Whoop-ti-do.

After the way his season has gone, he'd have to do something Herculean to convince us to draft him as a top 10 first baseman again next year. I'm talking a Ryan Zimmerman-in-2013-type correction so complete that we forget he was having a down year before it, as in a .380 batting average or so and half a dozen home runs. Real craziness.

But as we watch it all unfold, I think it's worth reminding everyone he's only 24. We probably have at least another five years of overreacting to every hot streak, wondering if it's a harbinger of more. And I remain convinced, given his pedigree and those stretches every other year when he appears oh so studly, that one day it will be.

Here's hoping he doesn't have that Herculean finish so we can get him for dirt cheap next year.
