Lorenzo Cain went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's win over the Astros.

Cain's second-inning solo homer off of Astros starter Dallas Keuchel pushed the Royal lead to 5-1. He also singled and scored a run as the Royals took two out of three in the weekend series and potential playoff preview. If the 29-year-old's current triple-slash of .312/.366/.502 stood at the end of the season, all three of those numbers would be career bests. He's already set a personal high for home runs with 11 and he'll likely pass last season's RBI total of 53 sometime in early August.
