The Royals' No. 23 prospect treated the home crowd to a tremendous display of power as he went 3-for-5 with three homers and six RBIs in Triple-A Omaha's 15-5 win over Memphis.

Eibner smashes his third homer

Three homers mark a new career high for the 27-year old outfielder, but it's not as if Eibner is totally void of power.

Since the Royals selected him in the second round of the 2010 Draft, Eibner has six career multi-homer games.

The six RBIs came up a bit short of Eibner's career-high mark. The Royals prospect also drove in six once last year and in 2014, in another multi-homer game, Eibner went 5-for-5 with nine RBIs.
