(TSX / STATS) -- DETROIT -- Eric Hosmer has won Gold Gloves and a championship in his seven-year career. The Kansas City Royals first baseman added a long-awaited grand slam to his resume on Wednesday.

Hosmer's first career grand slam highlighted a nine-run seventh inning and the Royals extended their season-best winning streak to eight games by pounding the Detroit Tigers 16-2 at Comerica Park.

"I thought about it after I realized it was my first one," Hosmer said. "It's baseball. It's crazy. I think the last time I hit a grand slam might have been high school or the minor leagues. But I'm glad to get one out of the way now."
