Brendan Donovan

On Tuesdsay, Donovan was 1-for-3 with a run and an RBI. In the bottom of the ninth, Donovan knocked the first home run of his career on a fly to right field off of Dillon Tate. The homer traveled 387-feet at 98.4 mph.

On Wednesday, Donovan was 2-for-2 with three runs, two walks, and two RBI.

Donvan knocked a double in the second inning on a liner to center field. He scored Yadier Molina and Corey Dickerson. The double traveled 390-feet at 100.3 mph.

Donovan scored the Cardinals tenth run of the game when Kramer Robertson grounded out in the eighth inning.

Donvan is making a great impression in his first venture with the big club. He  looks great wherever the Cardinals put him. He’s mostly filled in at shortstop after the demotion of Paul DeJong to Memphis. While DeJong is working to get his hitting on track, Donovan is getting some hits. The Cardinals made a great decision bringing him up to help.
