Tigers-Royals Preview

(AP) -- Lorenzo Cain won't allow a sore calf to hinder the most productive season of his career.

The All-Star center fielder expects to be available for Thursday night's decisive series finale against the visiting Detroit Tigers.

Cain has set career highs with 13 home runs and 61 RBIs during his stellar season and is batting .385 during a 10-game hitting streak. He homered and went 2 for 3 in Wednesday's 12-1 rout of Detroit (61-71) but left after fouling a ball off of his calf.
