Eric Hosmer hit a three-run homer off former teammate and good friend Greg Holland with two outs in the ninth inning to give the Royals a 6-4 win over the Rockies at Kauffman Stadium.
Hosmer finished 3-for-4 with four RBI for KC, which won its third straight game.
Nolan Arenado hit his 29th home run and Charlie Blackmon his 30th for Colorado, which dropped its fourth in-a-row.
Hosmer says it was great to finally hit his first career walk-off homer.
