Lorenzo Cain went 3-for-4 with two doubles in Tuesday's loss to the Astros.
Cain and the Royals' bats were kept pretty well under wraps by Dallas Keuchel, but the outfielder did manage to collect three of the team's eight hits and two of their three extra-base hits on the evening. Alas, they were shut out in the contest. That didn't keep Cain from raising his overall line to .296/.352/.447 with the strong showing. Jun 30 - 11:32 PM

Cain followed up his .329/.404/.476 month of April by hitting .267/.302/.356 in May. The Royals would probably be better off hitting him lower in the order against right-handers, but he's been a fixture in the third spot thus far.

May 23 - 12:59 AM

Lorenzo Cain went 3-for-4 and drove in a career-high five runs in rout against the Yankees on Friday.

The 29-year-old outfielder is batting .326/.378/.478 through 32 games this season and continues to play excellent defense in center field.
