Dylan Carlson knocked a double on a liner to right field on Saturday to score Tyler O’Neill.
In the sixth inning, the Cardinals scored six times to create a more comfortable lead over the Red Sox. The scoring started with Tyler O’Neill on Saturday. O’Neill knocked his fourth home run of the season on a fly to centerfield. The homer traveled 410 feet at 107.6 mph.
In the ninth inning, Andrew Knizner knocked a ground-rule double, to right-center field, scoring O’Neill.
On Sunday, O’Neill was 3-for-4 with a run and looked like it was starting to get things together after a rough start to the season. In the ninth inning, he knocked a double to center field. He was removed from the game with a possible hamstring injury. He was being evaluated during post-game press conferences.
This is really frustrating as O’Neill was starting to put together some hits and knocking the ball to all sides of the field. The Cardinals have to be hoping that if O’Neill has to miss anytime, it isn’t very long as he is a huge piece to the team’s ultimate success this season.
