Dylan Carlson had a terrific game on Thursday in a win over the Cubs, going 3-for-4 with two doubles, a home run, an RBI, and two runs scored.
Carlson took Adbert Alzolay deep to right for a leadoff homer in the bottom of the first inning to get the scoring started. Carlson would later add two doubles as well. Don't look now but Carlson has a four-game hitting streak and has driven in a run in four straight games as well. The uber-talented 22-year-old could be primed for a strong second half hitting atop the Cardinals lineup.
