The Royals challenge Melky Cabrera’s arm

In the bottom of the eighth inning down 5-4, Eric Hosmer led off with a single. Next Billy Butler singled to left and Hosmer went first to third, challenging Melky Cabrera’s arm. Some people thougth Hosmer deked Cabrera—Eric did slow down while coming into second base—but Hosmer said that wasn’t the plan; he saw how deep Cabrera was playing and thought he could take the extra 90 feet.
