Lorenzo Cain hit for the cycle on Saturday

Posted May 15, 2011


The Omaha Storm Chasers on Saturday prevailed in a slugfest with Colorado Springs, thanks largely to a 7-RBI performance by Lorenzo Cain, who also hit for the cycle. Elsewhere in the minors, John Lamb pitched the NW Arkansas Naturals to victory, while the suddenly resurgent Kane County Cougars won for the fourth time in five games.
