Matt is really coming through for the St. Louis Cardinals this month.
Take your pick of which Matt — same story for all three. Each has been a slugging BAMF, though all three in different ways, throughout September.
And Matts Carpenter, Holliday and Adams all played a role in last night’s 7-2 win over the Milwaukee Brewers. All had at least one hit, which is the 10th time that’s happened in the 18 games all three have played in this month
Adams hit a two-run homer in the first inning — Holliday was not surprisingly on base — to put the Cards on the board. It was Adams second straight game with a two-run homer (and guess who was on base Friday night too?)
In the fifth inning, Carpenter doubled for the 11th time in September and 54th time this year. That set a new season record for left-handed hitters, as he surpassed the 53 hit by none other than Stan Musial in 1953.
Combined, the three had five of the Cardinals nine hits for the game — and just continued what they’ve been doing all month.
