Deliveries don't always make it to their intended destination. With all the advances we've made in mailing large objects -- free two-day delivery and drones -- our packages still seem to end up with the next-door neighbor more often than they should.

During Sunday's 5-4 win over the Twins, Royals outfielder Melky "The Melkman" Cabrera delivered a home run right on target.


Former Utah Jazz power forward Karl Malone was nicknamed "The Mailman" because he always delivered. The Melkman, it appears, has earned his nickname through the accuracy of his deliveries.
