Cain’s HR in 8th lifts Royals over White Sox

Kansas City, MO ( – In six major league seasons, Kansas City
Royals outfielder Lorenzo Cain has averaged one home run every 20 games.

That number changes dramatically when he plays the Chicago White Sox.

Cain homered for the fifth time in 44 games against the White Sox, a two-run
blast in the bottom of the eighth inning that lifted the Royals to a 7-5 win
on Wednesday night.

Cain’s no-doubt-about-it shot off Zach Putnam (0-1) cleared the bullpen behind
left field and put the reigning American League champions in position to sweep
the season-opening three-game series.

The Royals celebrated their 2014 pennant on Monday, then won the opener 10-0
against their AL Central foes.
