Lorenzo Cain went all out for the Brewers, but his team still lost to the Braves in Game 3 of the back-and-forth National League Divisional Series.
After an injury-plagued season, Cain showed no weaknesses on Monday night.
Milwaukee now trails the series 2-1, but it’s good to see our MLBbro back healthy and in the lineup for the Milwaukee Brewers during the National League Division Series.

In Game 3, the Brewers fell to the Atlanta Braves 3-0, which leaves the Braves one win away from advancing to the next round.
While the Brewers lost to the Braves for the second straight time and Cain went 0-for-3 at the plate, he still left it all on the field, as he always does.
In the bottom of the fourth inning, Cain went all out as he attempted to make a catch in right center.

The veteran went full speed trying to catch a ball hit off of Adam Duvall’s bat. Cain was able to catch the ball but as he collided into the fence the ball popped out of his glove.
Though he wasn’t able to come up with the catch, just the effort alone is what you love to see from Cain.
For a brief moment, it looked as if Cain may have injured himself, but he knew in his mind that he was not coming out of the game.
This is how he plays day in and day out.
There’s a reason why he’s a Gold Glove Award winner. This brother is not afraid to go all out and make a big time play.
This is what the Brewers have been missing during the regular season, but now they don’t have to worry about that, since Cain is back.
And this brother is glad to be back in the playoffs.
“This year has been a tough year for me,” Cain told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. “A lot of injuries, starting in spring training. A quad injury and a hamstring injury. So, yeah, it’s been a tough season. But I worked my butt off to get back on the field – just in time for the playoffs, I guess.”
“Just going out there, grinding with the boys and just trying to produce and contribute to this team.”
During the NLDS, Cain has only one hit in nine at bats, but he continues to provide that spark out in the field.
That’s one thing you won’t have to worry about getting from him.
