Royals' Eric Hosmer hits three-run home run Wednesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer went 2 for 5 with a three-run home run in his team's 7-5 win over the White Sox Wednesday.

The Royals went ahead 1-0 after one inning but surrendered a three-run shot to the White Sox in the second. Hosmer continued the back-and-forth with a three-run homer of his own in the bottom of the third, and the teams continued to trade runs in the fourth, fifth and sixth innings before Lorenzo Cain put the Royals up for good with his own home run in the eighth.

Hosmer, who is 3 for 10 with one home run in his first two games of 2015, delivered a career-low nine home runs last season while hitting .270/.318/.398 in 503 at-bats.
