Eric Hosmer matched his career high with five hits, including his first major league grand slam, and the Kansas City Royals extended their winning streak to a season-high eight games with a 16-2 rout of the Detroit Tigers on Wednesday night in Detroit.
Hosmer entered with 117 homers but had not hit one with the bases loaded until he connected off Warwick Saupold in a nine-run seventh inning.
"I think the last grand slam I hit might have been in high school," he said. "I'm glad to finally get one up here."
Bruce Rondon was ejected with one out in the ninth after hitting Mike Moustakas on the back with a pitch, which caused both benches to empty.
"I think he was trying to hit me," said Moustakas, who took a couple of steps toward the mound before stopping. "I don't really understand what happened, but I got hit. I've been hit before. It's not a big deal."
