Hosmer’s homer leads Royals past Tigers 5-2

It was 99 degrees at game time, but it still took a few innings for the Royals’ bats to heat up Sunday in the rubber match of a three-game series with division-leading Detroit. It was Eric Hosmer’s majestic three-run home run in the fifth inning — a 414-foot blast off Doug Fister — that brought the Royals back from an early two-run deficit.
