4.) LORENZO CAIN SHOW’S HE’S BACK

Cain blasted three home runs and five RBIs on Tuesday night. No one will produce like that on a regular basis. In some ways I was more impressed by his solid game on Wednesday night when he went 1-2 with 2 walks and a key two-RBI single up the middle with the bases loaded in the sixth to give starter Yordano Ventura a three-run cushion.

More from Kings of Kauffman

Cain’s problem for much of April is that pitchers teased him with fastballs just outside the strike zone. Cain has responded by taking pitches the other way, and taking walks.

After getting going by peppering singles to right field, Cain has shown more extra base power. Now Cain is the no. 3 hitter that the Kansas City Royals need (when Mike Moustakas returns from his thumb injury).

Lorenzo Cain has come up big two nights in a row. The KC Royals offense REALLY needs him.

Next: Yordano Ventura
