Kansas City Royals
Lorenzo Cain #6
After four hours, thirty-four minutes and nine minutes shy of midnight, with the score tied 2-2, veteran Kansas City Royals All-Star right fielder Lorenzo Cain had enough of this 14-inning marathon, and promptly ended the game with one swing on the very first pitch delivered from Chicago White Sox reliever Matt Albers for a Royals 3-2 walk-off win. Both teams scored a single run in the 11th inning to extend the game into the 12th inning, leading up to Cain’s heroics in the 14th inning at Kauffman Stadium.
QUOTE: “I’ve been ready to go home for a while now. To come through for the boys was a very, very good feeling,” Cain said.
FACT: Cain’s game-winning single in the bottom of the 14th inning was his fifth career walk-off.
