Weve been struggling to swing the bat big time, said Cain after the game. Weve got to turn it on. Weve got to get going.

The next day Cain moved up to third in Yosts lineup while Escobar shifted from the bottom of the order to lead-off. With James Shields keeping the Red Sox hitters in check, the Royals responded with a badly needed 7-1 win. Pushing themselves to win the A.L. Central title, the Royals didnt yield to the Tigers until the last day of the regular season.

He (Yost) put me there with the hope of giving this team a boost, said Cain in retrospect. I feel last year thats exactly what happened.

Im just trying to go up there and do what I can to get on base, drive in runs and help this team win ball-games. Hitting in general is not easy for anyone, but I feel as a team weve just got to go out there and believe in ourselves.
