The legend of Lars Nootbaar grows
In the fourth inning Saturday, Nootbaar singled on a grounder to right field, scoring Andrew Knizner.
In the sixth inning, Nootbaar tripled on a grounder to right field. A crazy series of events followed thanks to right fielder Daulton Varsho, allowing Tommy Edman and Andrew Knizner to score.
Nootbaar turned the moment into an inside-the-park homer run thanks to a fielding error by Varsho.
Nootbaar led off Sunday’s game with his seventh home run of the season on a fly to right-center field. The homer went 398 feet at 107 mph.
Paul DeJong had a colossal moment
Paul DeJong has been struggling at the plate lately. That might be an understatement. But he had a moment Saturday that will hopefully shake him out of that nasty streak.
With Nolan Arenado, Nolan Gorman, and Tommy Edman on base, Paul DeJong blasted a grand slam home run to left center field. The homer traveled 397 feet at 101.2 mph.
