Kansas City — Hunter Dozer He didn’t hit a home run in the 100 racquet before he exploded in Monday’s opener against the Astros.
He only had to wait for six bats before his next bat.
Dozier made his second home run this week on Wednesday night, giving the royal family a… 3-2 win At Kauffman Stadium and a back-to-back victory over the MLS leaders Astros with the final on Thursday on board the ship.
The Royals secured their victory in the final game of the match, when left-back Andrew Benintende sent Chas McCormick off at home in the singles Scott Barlow played by Jose Altuve. The Astros contested the call, but after a one-minute and 12-second review, the call was judged as standing.
In one seventh inning after Houston scored two runs with Jason Castro’s song against Brady Singer on his excellent start, right-back Benintende responded with an advanced double against Blake Taylor.
Dozier took a slide from Taylor for a ball and then made a fastball into the inner corner. The next pitch was a slider, but in the same place as Fastball.
Dozer crushed her. He left his 10th home of the season at bat at 105 mph and went to the expected 425 feet of the Statcast, landing on the left field court in front of the Royals’ Hall of Fame.
