DETROIT -- Eric Hosmer has been trying to find his way out of a long slump, and coming to Detroit may have done the trick.A night after homering in a win over the Tigers, Hosmer spent most of Wednesday torturing the Comerica Park crowd.He walked in the fifth inning to break up Anibal Sanchezs perfect game, doubled in the seventh to end Sanchezs no-hit bid, then hit a tie-breaking two-run homer in the ninth to lead the Kansas City Royals to a 4-1 victory over Detroit and a three-game sweep.I dont think weve swept a series here in my career -- we havent even won more than a couple, he said. Ive been struggling for about a month now, but it has started to come around, and tonight felt really good.Sanchez threw seven shutout innings after allowing eight runs in four innings in his previous start. He struck out six and walked two Wednesday.Thats as good as Ive ever seen Anibal Sanchez throw the ball, Royals manager Ned Yost said. I had seen what he had done in his last start, but I know that when hes on, he has ridiculous command of his fastball and a phenomenal changeup. Thats what he had tonight.Sanchez agreed.Today, everything was coming out good, he said. I felt good all game, and I just wanted to keep the score at 1-0. I wasnt thinking about the no-hitter.The Tigers have lost eight of their last 10 games.Im not whining -- we have to come out and win a game tomorrow, Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said. They came up with big hits late tonight and we didnt. That was the difference.Justin Wilson replaced Sanchez for the eighth with a 1-0 lead and allowed a tying homer to Alex Gordon on his first pitch.In the ninth, Shane Greene (2-3) allowed a one-out single to Lorenzo Cain before Hosmers line drive into the right-field stands. Drew Butera added an RBI single later in the inning.I made a bad pitch to a good hitter, Greene said. It was a cutter and I tried to get too perfect with it. It happens.Matt Strahm (1-0) got his first career win with 1 2/3 scoreless innings of relief, and Kelvin Herrera pitched the ninth for his sixth save.Victor Martinez gave the Tigers a 1-0 lead in the second with a homer over the 365-foot sign in right-center field. Detroit had 11 more baserunners, but hit into two double plays and stranded nine.The Royals didnt come close to getting a runner in the first four innings, but Hosmer and Gordon both drew walks in the fifth.Sanchez got through the inning without a hit, but was already at 80 pitches, and he came into the game having allowed a 1.080 OPS after his 75th pitch.Sanchez got through the sixth on eight pitches, then retired the first two batters in the seventh without trouble, but Hosmer lined a first-pitch curveball into the left-center field gap to end the drama.TRAINERS ROOMRoyals: RHP Kris Medlen, sidelined since May 21 with rotator-cuff inflammation, threw two scoreless innings in a Rookie-level Arizona League game. ... LHP Jason Vargas, who has missed the entire season after Tommy John surgery, was scheduled to start Wednesday night for Double-A Northwest Arkansas.Tigers: Miguel Cabrera returned after sitting out Tuesdays loss with a strained left biceps. He didnt look entirely comfortable, shaking his arm after swings, but hit a 112 mph groundball in the third inning, per Statcast. ... LF Tyler Collins left the game after seven innings with a right-knee contusion. He had been hit by Yordano Venturas 99 mph fastball in the sixth, and Ausmus said hes expected to miss a few games.FORGIVING FANSErick Aybar got a loud cheer from the Comerica Park crowd when he batted for the first time as a Tiger -- a change from his usual greeting in Detroit. In 2011, Aybar bunted to try to break up Justin Verlanders no-hitter in the eighth inning, drawing an angry response from both the Tigers ace and the fans.Verlander joked that the Tigers trading for Aybar on Tuesday made him glad he didnt retaliate.I told him I was going to hit him, but I never did, Verlander said. So that will make things easier in the clubhouse.UP NEXTRoyals: Kansas City returns home to start a four-game series with the Twins on Thursday night. Dillon Gee (4-6, 4.78) is scheduled to start against Minnesotas Tyler Duffey (8-8, 5.71).Tigers: Detroit plays Boston on Thursday in the first of a four-game series. Matt Boyd (4-2, 4.16) faces Clay Buchholz (4-9. 5.66) in a game being played during the afternoon because of a Detroit Lions exhibition game at nearby Ford Field in the evening. Nicklas Lidstrom Jersey . NBA officials ruled the court unplayable in the Bucks final exhibition game on Oct. 25 because players were slipping, and the game was cancelled midway through the first period. Niklas Kronwall Jersey . First off, the fans ripped the Cubbies introduction of a fuzzy new kid-friendly mascot named "Clark". .Y. -- Paul Byron and Matt Stajan scored as the Calgary Flames started a five-game road trip with a 2-1 overtime win over the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday afternoon. Sergei Fedorov Jersey . How great will be revealed in the next couple of days at the board of governors meeting in Pebble Beach, Calif. Anthony Mantha Jersey . Three came down to the fourth quarter while quarterbacks continued to shine in all four games; so important to the overall quality of the game. RIO DE JANEIRO -- Matching London 2012s Super Saturday four years on and in a different country was always going to be a tough task, but no hyperbole was required to call Britains blockbusting Brazilian sequel brilliant.It was Team GBs most successful day at these Games with three golds, four silvers and a bronze, and it saw the nation sitting firmly in third place in the rankings with a tally of 30 medals -- only 18 short of achieving the overall target with a week to go.Mo Farah took a dramatic gold again, too, defending his 10,000 metres title despite being tripped and falling in the 10th lap. He just didnt have anyone on the track and field team to share the top-step-on-the-podium experience this time, and that made this Super Saturday slimmed down for some.Jess Ennis-Hill and Greg Rutherford both struck gold in London and, with Farah, all three did so in the space of 44 wonderful minutes.This time around Ennis-Hill had to make do with silver, having missed out to a relatively new kid on the heptathlon block, Belgiums Nafissatou Thiam, and Rutherfords long jump medal was bronze.Im pretty emotional but these are happy tears, said deposed champion Ennis-Hill, who couldnt quite beat her rival by enough of a time margin in the final event, the 800m, to take the title. These two days have been really tough but Im really proud.I have to make a decision as to whether this is my last heptathlon or not but Im so proud of what I have achieved over the last few years.Rutherford was less pleased with his performance, a poor no-jump call partly being blamed. Ultimately I didnt jump long enough today, which is very difficult for me to take, he said after his longest effort of 8.29m was 11 centimetres short of American Jeff Hendersons winning mark.Ive just got to make do and move on from that, but Im pretty gutted.Ive won a lot [before] and today I havent won. Thats something Im not used to and something I have to deal with and figure out. Its not good enough in my eyes.When track and field -- the marquee sport -- hasnt shone the brightest of the bunch, the day was bound to take on a different hue.ddddddddddddAnd the disappointment of Katarina Johnson-Thompsons rivalry with Ennis-Hill fizzling out when she scored poorly in the javelin, ultimately slipping from third to sixth, didnt help matters.But that shouldnt detract from some other fabulous achievements in an Olympics that is rapidly becoming one of the finest for British firsts.On Saturday, cyclist Laura Trott became the first British female to win three titles at the Games after a world-record team pursuit victory; Farah took his tally to three Olympic track and field golds, which has never been done by a Briton before; the womens rowing eight silver was the nations first medal in the discipline.They were following in the footsteps of other athletes earlier in the week, such as Katherine Grainger and Sir Bradley Wiggins, whose medal collections are now unmatched by those representing the nation at the Olympics. Diving, trampolining and gymnastics have also recorded firsts.Saturday was super for other reasons, too: the rowing mens eight ended a 16-year wait for the title; Becky James keirin silver gave Team GB its fourth success from five track cycling events as the squads domination in the Velodrome continued; the mens 4x100m medley relay silver in the pool made these Games Britains most successful in swimming pool for more than a century.On top of that, Andy Murray made it through to the final of the mens singles tennis and Justin Rose -- who has already recorded a hole-in-one first for the Games -- led the golf.On pure medal comparisons, this probably wasnt Super Saturday II. In 2012, Team GB won six golds and a silver. Thats one fewer in total than this time round but with a lot more bling.Sequels have seldom been as good as the originals, but that doesnt mean they havent been worth watching.
