Angels third baseman David Freese thought he had his third home run of the season last night when he lifted a fly ball to distant center field against Royals right-hander Louis Coleman. However, Lorenzo Cain had other plans. Check out this excellent leaping catch:

Nobody has ever questioned Cain’s talent. It’s just a matter of him staying healthy. On a related note, be sure to read this excellent piece on Cain from Andy McCullough of the Kansas City Star.

Neither the Pirates nor the Tigers could manage any offense during Thursday afternoon’s game at PNC Park. That is, until outfielder Corey Dickerson launched a walk-off solo home run off of Alex Wilson with one out in the bottom of the ninth inning.

Dickerson, 28, has been solid for the Pirates for the first month of the season. He’s batting .314/.348/.500 with a pair of home runs, 13 RBI, and 13 runs scored in 92 plate appearances. The Pirates acquired him from the Rays in late February in exchange for journeyman pitcher Daniel Hudson and Single-A infielder Tristan Gray.
