St. Louis Cardinals: Nolan Arenado etches his name in franchise record books
With his second-inning solo home run on Tuesday night, Arenado blasted a homer in his fifth consecutive game. With that shot, he became the ninth player in St. Louis history to have that kind of a power streak, and the first since Paul Goldschmidt did it in six games between July 22-27, 2019.
Should Arenado connect on a homer in his sixth consecutive game on Wednesday night, it will match a personal best for him. The seven-time All-Star third baseman has already done that once in his career, launching homers in six straight contests as a member of the Colorado Rockies from September 1-5, 2015.
While Arenado will be looking to match his personal home run streak against the Brewers, he’ll also be looking to reach another milestone. The homer on Tuesday put him at 999 career RBI, so the 1,000-RBI mark is well within reach and will likely be a cause for celebration inside Busch Stadium should he get there sometime before the homestand ends on Sunday.
