Standout – Brendan Donovan

This young man had an outstanding series against the Cubs.

Donovan played second base and was 1-for-2 Thursday. On Friday, he played second base and third base, going 1-for-5, with an RBI.

In the Cardinals Saturday afternoon game, Donovan started at first base and moved to rightfield after Corey Dickerson was removed for a calf injury. Donovan was 1-for-3 with a walk.

On Saturday evening, he played left field and was 3-for-5 with one run and four RBI.  In the fourth inning with Donovan up, Cubs starter Caleb Kilian threw a wile pitch to score Tommy Edman. Donovan then hit his seventh double of the season on a liner to left field, scoring Paul Goldschmidt and Nolan Arenado.

In the tenth inning, Donovan doubled again on a liner to left field off Michael Rucker, scoring Goldschmidt and Arenado.

Donovan started in the right field on Sunday night. He was two-for-five with one RBI. In the 11th inning, Donovan hit his ninth double of the season on a drive to right field, scoring Bader.
