7 shining moments in Cardinals series with Phillies
Corey Dickerson steps up as Pujols breaks another record
The Cardinals had their best inning in some time in the fifth inning of Monday’s game. Corey Dickerson singled to center field to score Dylan Carlson. Edmundo Sosa doubled to left field, scoring Dickerson. Andrew Knizner single d to right field, to score Sosa.
Albert Pujols got on base in the seventh inning, with a double that was inches away from being a home run. The double was the 1,378th extra-base hit of his career moving him ahead of Hall of Famer and Cardinals legend Stan Musial for third all-time. Unreal!
Dickerson knocked his third home run of the season with a fly to right-center field, scoring Pujols. The home run traveled 395 feet at 101.6 mph.
Lars Nootbaar joined the hit parade knocking his third homer of the season, with a fly to right field. The home run traveled 390 feet at 102.1 mph.
It was so good to see the Cardinals string together some hits and score some runs. It seemed like so long since we had seen them do this and it was great.
