After some dismal offense from the Cardinals, the team kicked it up a notch and broke out of their slump Wednesday.
Corey Dickerson got things started in the first inning with a line drive to right field, scoring Tyler O’Neill.
In the third inning, Nolan Arenado singled to right field to score Tommy Edman and Paul Goldschmidt.
In the fourth inning, Edman doubled to right field scoring Yadier Molina. Later that inning, Carlos Carrasco threw a wild pitch that allowed Edmundo Sosa to score. Dickerson singled on a soft grounder to the Carrasco, allowing Edman to score.
Sean Reid-Foley was brought in to relieve Carrasco. Dylan Carlson knocked a triple to right field, allowing Arenado and Dickerson to score.
In the sixth inning, Arendado knocked a ground-rule double to left field, allowing O’Neill to score. And in the seventh, Goldschmidt knocked a single to center field, scoring Edman.
It was great to see the team break out of their slump. It had to be rewarding for several of the guys who had been in some personal slumps. There were also some pretty fantastic defensive plays.
Take a look at this diving catch by O’Neill.
And here is a tremendous catch and throw in from center field from Dylan Carlson.
What an arm! Carlson’s reaction to nailing the throw and getting the out was awesome.
