For Pete's Sake

Lorenzo Cain fell victim to the rare Ninja Salvy Splash

The only thing hotter than the weather is Royals outfielder Lorenzo Cain.

Cain hit two home runs in the Royals’ 3-1 win over the Angels on Friday night, and his statistics in the month of June are staggering:

Average: .368

On-base percentage: .400

Slugging percentage: .825

On-base-plus slugging percentage: 1.225

Home runs: 8

RBIs: 16

Although teammate Salvador Perez doesn’t want Cain to cool off, Salvy did just that on Friday night. Cain thought he avoided a Salvy Splash, but Perez pulled a ninja move and came from behind.
