All right let’s be honest: Who saw this coming? Anyone raises their hand and the rest of us are calling prairie chips.

We’re not just talking about the 13-0 bludgeoning the Royals put on the Minnesota Twins on Monday night at Kauffman Stadium — although who foresaw that?

There was much to note certainly.

Eric Hosmer established a career high with five RBIs with a two-run single in a six-run second inning that served effectively as a TKO. He then provided a three-run exclamation point with a 414-foot bomb in the sixth.

Jeremy Guthrie 12-7 won his fourth straight start and set a career high with his club-leading 12th victory. And he did it in style with his second career shutout and sixth career complete game.

Mike Moustakas tied a career high with four hits and yes it’s no coincidence the Royals broke loose for 13 runs and 16 hits on a night when Hosmer and Moustakas each flexed their muscles.

And there was one overly exuberant fan who chose to frolic in the left-field fountains. That meant jail but really all of that was fine — the whole night was way more than fine but ….

This makes 12 victories in 13 games now for the Royals and … yeah just put your hands down. All of you. These guys are now five games over .500 at 57-52 while on a 14-3 burst since the All-Star break.

What’s it mean?

“It’s going to be a fun last couple of months” Hosmer vowed. “The way this energy in the locker room is when that game turns on there’s one goal in everyone’s mind. That’s winning.
