Padres' Eric Hosmer: Ends power drought

Hosmer went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Thursday's 6-4 win over Cincinnati. The first baseman picked a great time to end his home run drought, as his game-tying two-run shot in the ninth inning was his first in 20 games. Hosmer remains in a bit of a cold stretch in June, going just 7-for-52 (.135) in his last 16 games. That's dragged his slash line down to .253/.312/.367 across 250 plate appearances this year. He's added six homers, 35 RBI, 21 runs scored and four stolen bases.
