Philadelphia (AP) — St. Louis Cardinals will be the first major league team to hit four home runs at a time when Nolan Arenado, Nolan Gorman, Juan Yepez and Dylan Carson played against Philadelphia on Saturday. I did.
Cardinals tied the innings MLB record four times in a row. This is the first time they have done it and the 11th in total in the history of the Big League.
After Phillies starter Kyle Gibson scored the first two outs, Paul Goldschmidt became a single and Arenado fired two run shots at the left fielder of the slider, launching a long ball onslaught. Arenado’s drive took place the night after his second hitting for the cycle in his career, with a 5-3 defeat to Philadelphia in St. Louis.
Following Gorman, a 2-1 cutter was driven into the right fielder’s seat. Yepes then fouled 1-2 pitches before clearing the fence with his left fielder, and the Cardinals hit three home runs for the first time since September 19, 2002.
Carson completed an amazing power display by connecting to a 1-0 sinker that hit the front of the second deck with his right fielder on the first pitch he saw.
The last team to hit a home run in four at-bats in a row was the Chicago White Sox, who played against the Cardinals on August 16, 2020.
Gibson allowed only nine home runs in the 80 1/3 innings on Saturday.
Lars Nootbar chased Carlson and made good contact with the flyball caught in front of the left wing, but the home spectators took a breather when he finished the inning with a great deal of embarrassment on the warning track.
