On August 26, 2018 — Continuing his torrid hitting since June, the Cardinals’ Matt Carpenter ties a club record that dates back to Hall of Famer Joe Medwick in 1937 by hitting four doubles in a 12 – 3 win over the Rockies. He leads off the game with a two-base hit off Tyler Anderson and adds another before the end of the inning as the Cards score 6 runs with two outs. P Austin Gomber contributes with a two-run single in the inning on his way to notching the win.
