The St. Louis Cardinals pounded first-place Cincinnati on Sunday, 8-2. St. Louis’ 17 hits were the most allowed by Cincinnati in any game this season. Two of the team’s biggest bats each had a big day. Matt Holliday had four hits and four RBI, while Allen Craig homered and drove in three runs. From an individual perspective, each of the players’ performances stack up well in recent Cardinals history, according to the following lists provided by researcher Tom Orf. With 35 games remaining, Holliday can break a tie with several others for the most four-hit, four-RBI games in a season. He currently has two such contests. Collectively, the 2012 Cardinals team has five four-hit, four-RBI games, just one off the best season in that stat since at least 1935.
