Arenado’s two home runs propel Cardinals past Phillies

The St. Louis Cardinals made history against right-hander Kyle Gibson on Saturday. They became just the 11th team in MLB history to hit four straight home runs. To put it in other words, they went back-to-back-to-back-to-back.

And they did it in the first inning.

First up was Nolan Arenado, who hit a two-run home run. Next up was Nolan Gorman, who has continued to surprise many in his rookie season. Speaking of rookies, Juan Yepez was the next Cardinal to homer in the first inning, making it a 4-0 game. Finally, Dylan Carlson hit his fifth home run of the season, and gave the Cardinals a 5-0 lead.

As for Arenado, he refused to let Friday night’s Cardinal meltdown repeat itself.

A solo shot in the top of the ninth gave the Cardinals the 7-6 lead, and Ryan Helsley locked it down for St. Louis for the victory.

They’ll look for the series win tomorrow.
