Nolan Arenado is a St. Louis Cardinal, through and through

With tremendous defense and timely hitting, Nolan Arenado reminded fans that he is a St. Louis Cardinals and it is so great.

In the first inning Saturday, Arenado singled to left field, scoring Paul Goldschmidt.

And that was all it took on Saturday. Oh, and this nifty play on the third base line from the Gold and Platinum Glove award winner.

On Sunday, Arenado singled in the first inning on a grounder to left field, scoring Dylan Carlson.

In the second inning, Arenado blasted his 22nd home run of the season on a fly to left center field, scoring Carlson and Brendan Donovan. The home run traveled 405 feet into the Yankees bullpen at 104.7 mph.
