by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/18/2015) Royals center fielder Lorenzo Cain came through with the biggest hit of the day in the 7-6 extra-innings win over the White Sox on Saturday. Cain, who went 3 for 5 in the game, belted a go-ahead solo home run in the top of the 13th inning, and the Royals were able to hang on for the victory.

Cain also singled, doubled and scored earlier in the game. The home run was his first career extra-innings longball. The 2015 All-Star has been scorching at the dish lately, batting .487 with three homers and 11 RBI in his last 10 contests.

"I've just been seeing the ball really well as of late," Cain said. "I've been getting good pitches to hit and laying off the bad pitches. That's kind of the biggest difference. ... It's a tough grind each and every day, but I'm just trying to stay locked in as long as possible."
