Steve Cameron: Lefty Hosmer making impact for Royals

Being fair to Guillen, his move was done “by the book” – you know, that imaginary baseball Bible which dictates that you set up a possible double play AND make a young left-handed hitter produce against Thornton.

Of course we know how it all turned out – Hosmer sent an 0-1 pitch screaming over the head of left-fielder Juan Pierre for a game-winning double.

Anyone who has watched the Royals this season might have predicted that outcome, in part because it was Hosmer’s 12th game-winning RBI.

He’s one of those guys who somehow can raise his game in clutch situations.

“You don’t learn that,” manager Ned Yost said. “You’re born with it.”

Thanks to The Not So Great Vorelli.
