After strong spring, Cain shakes off rough start

After strong spring, Cain shakes off rough start

ANAHEIM -- Center fielder Lorenzo Cain, a hitting star for the Royals throughout Spring Training, experienced a rugged Opening Day experience on Friday night. He went 0-for-4 and Angels winner Jered Weaver struck him out three times.

"He was lights-out last night, but it was just one day," Cain said. "We're going to bounce back and we've got a lot of games to play this season."

Cain also ranged far into right-center field to catch a long drive by the Kendrys Morales.

"It was a tweener, so it was kind of tough to judge because I thought it might hit off the wall, but I got a chance to get there and caught it off the top of the wall," Cain said. "It was a tough play but I was able to make it."
