Nootbaar was quickly able to rejoin the St. Louis club as Juan Yepez was placed on the injured list prior to the start of this series with the Reds.
In the eighth inning, Nootbaar proved it was a great decision to bring him back so quickly as he launched his fourth home run of the season. The homer traveled on a fly to right field, scoring Brendan Donovan and Nolan Gorman. The blast went 426 feet at a staggering 110 mph.
It will be fun to see what Noot can do in the second half!
