Did you know Kansas City Royals, Jeff Francoeur, has landed the leading role on the Rifleman?   Probably, because of that lethal weapon he showed last night in the Atlanta/KC game.  There were two outs in the inning with the score tied at 2, a routine flyball was hit to right-center field with Atlanta Braves, Andrelton Simmons on the move from first, center fielder, Lorenzo Cain, somehow dropped ball to end the inning.  As Andrelton Simmons was rounding third base, The Rifleman did what every smart ballplayer does, back up your teammate just in case. Take a look to see what happened to poor Andrelton Simmons. Though it saved a run and the Royals got out of the inning.  Atlanta ended up winning 6-3 as they belted out 3 home runs in the 8th inning to extend their winning streak to 10.
