Josh Donaldson went 3-for-4 with a pair of homers, four RBIs and three runs scored against the Royals on Tuesday night. Donaldson's first home run tied his career-high of 24 homers, and he wasted little time in setting a new season high by belting his 25th later in the game. Donaldson's three hit night was apart of a 20-hit, 11-3 victory to even this four-game set at Kauffman Stadium. Donaldson's .255 batting average is a disappointment to some fantasy owners, but Donaldson makes up for the lost points of average with better marks in homers and steals. He's on pace to top his runs scored and RBI marks from 2013 as well. Even with a lower average, Donaldson has cemented himself as one of the game's elite options at third base.
