Brewers' Lorenzo Cain: Rescues team from collapse
Cain went 3-for-6 with a double and an RBI in Friday's 7-6 extra-inning victory over the Pirates.
After the Brewers blew a five-run lead in the ninth inning, Cain hit an opposite-field RBI single that ended up accounting for the game's deciding run. The veteran center fielder saw the ball well at the plate all night with two of his three outs coming on sharp line drives. After slashing a disappointing .233/.327/.256 and striking out 23 times in June, the 33-year-old notched his first three-hit performance since May 30. After hitting .300 in five of the past six seasons, the former World Series champion will look to improve his .250 batting average and .671 OPS and re-secure the everyday leadoff spot following the all-star break.
