With no outs in the sixth inning, O'Hearn tied the game with a two-run homer off Tanner Roark. The 26-year-old has been heating up of late, earning himself more opportunities in the Royals lineup.

O'Hearn went 2-for-3 with two solo home runs, two walks and an additional run Sunday in the Royals' 9-8 win over the Indians in 10 innings.
O'Hearn had already been eating into Cheslor Cuthbert's playing time at first base versus right-handed pitching of late and may have cemented himself as the Royals' top option on the depth chart with his performance in the series finale. His extra-inning blast off reliever Nick Goody held up as the game-winning run, allowing the Royals to snap a four-game losing streak.

O'Hearn will enter the lineup for a fifth consecutive contest while Cheslor Cuthbert shifts across the diamond.

O'Hearn is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Twins.
O'Hearn will take a seat with a left-hander (Devin Smeltzer) on the bump for Minnesota, paving the way for Cheslor Cuthbert to occupy first base in the series finale.

O'Hearn is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Blue Jays.
After being recalled from Triple-A Omaha on Saturday, O'Hearn drew back-to-back starts at first base, going 1-for-8 with two RBI between the two contests. O'Hearn will take a seat Monday with the Blue Jays bringing a lefty pitcher (Thomas Pannone) to the hill, but he could handle a large-side platoon role until the Royals get Adalberto Mondesi (shoulder) back from the injured list. Though he plays in the middle infield, Mondesi's eventual return would likely create a domino effect that would make O'Hearn the odd man out in Kansas City's regular lineup versus righties.

O'Hearn was 4-for-26 with 11 strikeouts since the start of June, dropping his season slash line down to .188/.286/.333. Lucas Duda and Cheslor Cuthbert should see time at first base for the Royals, at least until Hunter Dozier (side) returns from the injured list.

O'Hearn is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the White Sox.
O'Hearn had started each of the previous three games, going 0-for-11 during that stretch to sink his season batting average to .185.
