Hosmer homers as Omaha clinches division title

KANSAS CITY -- Eric Hosmer's stay in Omaha can continue if the Royals want him to continue his injury rehab stay.

The Storm Chasers clinched their fourth straight division title on Sunday night with a 13-8 victory over the Colorado Springs Sky Sox.

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.
