Lorenzo Cain’s star enjoyed another shining moment on Tuesday evening when the former Tallahassee Community College Eagle and current Kansas City Royal helped lead the American League to a 6-3 win over the National League in Major League Baseball’s 2015 All-Star Game in Cincinnati. The home run, was no doubt, an order from manager Yost, further evidence of Yost’s brilliant managing in the game.
Cain will bat 5th, Perez will bat 7th and Escobar will bat 9th.
Cain singled and stole a base in the third inning.
So, if you want to apply this kind of attention to the Kansas City Royals, you should probably be keeping a watchful eye on those coveted minor league prospects, or perhaps some of our big league bullpen arms, as they’re most likely the ones to be dishing out hugs upon their departure. Jose Altuve would strike out to end the threat, but the Royals had clearly gotten their revenge against Bumgarner.
With two outs and a run already on the board in the fifth, Cain roped an RBI-double into the left field corner off Los Angeles Dodgers southpaw Clayton Kershaw to push the American League’s lead to 3-1. Alcides Escobar would add a single to make him 1-for 2 for the night. No one else had more than one hit in the game. Gordon will be inactive due to the groin injury he suffered last week. What a time to be alive.
