Watch: Lorenzo Cain Lays Out & Makes Fantastic Diving Catch

Don’t look now, but the Royals are the hottest team in baseball. Winners of their last eight games, they now trail the Detroit Tigers by just one-half game for the lead in the AL Central.

Good teams make great plays, and that’s exactly what Royals CF Lorenzo Cain did in Monday’s 11-8 win against the Tigers.

With the team leading 7-2 in the bottom of the sixth inning, the Tigers were looking to mount a comeback, but Cain shut the door on them quickly.

Tigers J.D. Martinez crushed a ball toward the gap, for what would have been a surefire RBI double or possibly even a triple. But Cain dived and made a phenomenal catch—robbing him of an extra-base hit.

The Royals keep finding ways to win, and they’re getting it done with highlight-reel plays such as this one.
