St. Louis Cardinals: 6 MVP candidates in Cubs series sweep
6 of 7
Paul Goldschmidt had a huge series for the Cardinals this weekend.
Goldschmidt got things started with his 30th home run of the season on Friday afternoon a 402 foot fly to center field, scoring Tommy Edman.
In the sixth inning of Friday afternoon’s game, he knocked a single to right field scoring Lars Nootbaar and moving Edman to second. In the seventh inning, Goldschmidt knocked a double to right field, scoring Paul DeJong.
On Sunday, Goldschmidt hit his 31st home run of the season of a 464-foot blast at 109.1 mph to dead center field.
During this winning streak for the Cardinals, Goldschmidt has been key on offense and defense. He has been tremendous for the team. Here’s hoping he keeps it up through October.
