A favorite nickname given by Royals fans to second baseman/outfielder Whit Merrifield is “Two-hit Whit.”

But first baseman Eric Hosmer did something during the Royals’ loss to the Cardinals on Monday night that not even “Two-hit Whit” has done this season. Hosmer hit a ball twice with one swing of the bat.

It happened in the bottom of the eighth inning when Hosmer was batting against St. Louis starter Carlos Martinez at Kauffman Stadium.
