Nolan Arenado went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in a 5-3 loss to the Padres on Sunday Night Baseball.
Arenado also committed an uncharacteristic error in the fourth inning that opened the gates to a four-run inning that ultimately was the difference in the ballgame. Nonetheless, the superstar gold glover is now up to nine homers on the year after homering in each game over the weekend and is slashing a robust .300/.353/.563 on the season and rewarding those fantasy owners who took advantage of his discounted draft-day price earlier this spring.
Nolan Arenado went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in a 13-3 loss to the Padres on Saturday night.
The homer was Arenado's eighth of the season after he homered on Friday night as well. He's now slashing a very respectable .295/.349/.545 on the year with an .894 OPS, 8 home runs, 22 runs scored, and 26 RBI in 40 games.

Arenado slugged his seventh homer of the season in the ninth inning off of Padres closer Mark Melancon after notching a single and a double earlier in the game. The superstar third baseman is now slashing a healthy .294/.349/.529 on the season.

Arenado lined a German Marquez fastball to left field to lead off the second inning and get the Cardinals on the board. The superstar third baseman - who spent his first eight seasons in Colorado - now has six homers on the year to go with a solid .281/.340/.511 slash line.
Nolan Arenado came to the plate in the third inning on Monday, trailing 5-2 with two on and two out, and unloaded a three-run home run to left field off of Mets starter Joey Lucchesi to tie the game. Arenado finished the evening 1-for-3 with a walk as well.
The timely home run from Arenado tied up the game, erasing an early deficit, and the Cardinals would go on to win 6-5 thanks in large part to their superstar third baseman. Arenado has been a bit of a letdown through the first month of the season, but he now has five home runs while hitting .265 to go with an .821 OPS on the year. More encouraging, however, is that over his past four games, he's 6-for-16 (.375) with a homer, three doubles, a triple, three runs scored, and eight RBI.
