Cain's slam nets $25,000 for Kansas native

KANSAS CITY -- Lorenzo Cain's sixth-inning grand slam in Thursday's win over Cleveland was the Royals' fourth of the season, tying them for the Major League lead with Boston, Seattle and Atlanta.

It was Cain's first of his career and second of the series against the Indians, following Alex Gordon's grand slam in Tuesday night's 6-5 win. The last time the Royals hit four in a season was 2010.

It made one fan's night really special as Debbie Hassed of Overland Park, Kan., won $25,000 through the Sonic Slam inning on the FOX Sports Kansas City broadcast. She also won an additional $100 for George Kottaras' solo home run in the same inning.
