The Angels had four runs in, cutting the Royals' lead to what would be a final score of 8-6, with two out and two runners on base when Howie Kendrick connected with a drive to right-center. Cain got to it for the catch, keeping the potential tying runs from scoring.
"He got a phenomenal jump on it," Yost said. "He was gone at the crack of the bat and closed ground. I don't know how he caught it, just spectacular athleticism."
Yost classed that kind of catch with those in the heyday of such outfielders as Andruw Jones, Carlos Beltran and Jim Edmonds.
