Game Thread XI: Lorenzo Cain makes his return

Old friend.

MLB: Minnesota Twins at Kansas City Royals Jeffrey Becker-USA TODAY Sports

In probably one of the more anticipated games of the 2018 Royals season, an old friend will make his return to Kauffman Stadium in Lorenzo Cain. This will be Cain’s first game ever at Kauffman Stadium as a visitor and his first game playing against the Royals.

The pitching matchup features Ian Kennedy who is looking to continue his early season success in his fifth start of the season. On the bump for the Brewers will be right-hander Zach Davies, also making his fifth start of the year.
