Hosmer, in his second game for Omaha, belted a solo home run in the fifth inning for his only hit in four at-bats. He also walked once and is now 3-for-10 (.300) as he tests his injured right hand.
The Storm Chasers are to finish their regular season on Monday, then meet Memphis in the first game of the best-of-five American Conference finals at 7:05 p.m. CT on Wednesday in Omaha.
If the Royals feel Hosmer needs more at-bats, he could be in the Storm Chasers' lineup for that game.
