Royals Farm Report: May 5
Beltre delivered a walk-off win for Kane County
Beltre delivered a walk-off win for Kane County

Posted May 6, 2011


Until Geulin Beltre delivered a 14th inning game-winning RBI single for the Kane County Cougars on Thursday night, the Royals minor league system was having a rough day. Not only had top prospect Eric Hosmer been promoted to Kansas City, but the top three minor league affiliates dropped their games. Indeed, Kane County was the only winner on what will hopefully be a historic day for the KC system.
