Royals outfielder Lorenzo Cain was the lone bright spot offensively for the Royals during Tuesday's 4-0 loss to the Astros.

Cain went 3 for 4 at the plate during the contest. He is now 10 for 26 with three RBI in his last eight games. Cain has been nursing a nagging hamstring issue over the past week or so, but he didn't let any limitations get in his way on Tuesday.

"He's doing a great job of gauging when he needs to run hard and when he doesn't," manager Ned Yost said, per MLB.com. "That's how you deal with leg injuries. You can play through it if you're smart."

News
The Royals have sent shortstop Christian Colon to Triple-A Omaha and promoted fellow infielder Dusty Coleman from the same team, MLB.com has reported.

Colon played sparingly after a stint as a starter in the wake of an injury to Alcides Escobar. A 3-for-22 slide has lowered his average from .286 to .244.

The 28-year-old Coleman should finally receive an opportunity to make his big-league debut, but his promotion might be mistimed. He is in a 2-for-17 slump, though his slash line still stands at a fine .303/.383/.469.
