The Cardinals and starter Lance Lynn had a scary moment in the top of the third inning against the Royals on Thursday evening. Lorenzo Cain squarely hit a 1-2 fastball from Lynn right back up the middle, striking the hurler in the head. The ball ricocheted all the way into right-center field.

Lynn stayed in the game, somehow. He finished the evening giving up three runs (two earned) on six hits and five walks with three strikeouts in six innings.
