Kolten Wong powers Cardinals for walk-off home runs on back-to-back nights

Yesterday night it was Matt Adams, tonight it was Kolten Wong. After not having one since David Freese in Game 6 of the 2011 World Series, the Cardinals have hit walk-off home runs in back-to-back games. That was a span of 501 games without one before Adams. It was the first time the Cardinals have hit walk off home runs in back-to-back games since June 4th and 5th of 2011 where...

Adams' walk-off blast sinks Pirates

You could call Cardinals first baseman Matt Adams many things, most of them flattering, but one of them would not be light-footed. Yet, as he circled the bases Monday night at Busch Stadium on the first game-ending homer at any level of his baseball career, he fairly flew. “I don’t think I touched the dirt the whole way around,” said the imposing Adams, whose two-run shot off...

Everybody bounce: Big City bails out Cardinals with first career walk-off home run

ST. LOUIS -- If you're looking for the Cardinals' first-half MVP (not named Adam Wainwright), you don't have to look past the first baseman. If there was any doubt about before Monday night, Matt Adams erased it as quickly as he slugged the Cardinals to a 2-0, walk-off victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates at Busch Stadium. Facing hard-throwing lefty Justin Wilson, the...

ST. LOUIS -- Matt Adams hit a two-run home run in the bottom of the ninth inning to give the St. Louis Cardinals a 2-0 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Monday night in the opener of a four-game series with the NL Central rival they topped in the division series last fall.

Adams' blasts, Lynn's command lift Cards

For Lance Lynn the click came in the middle of a game and for slugger Matt Adams it happened in the middle of a rehab assignment. What each has been able to do since as a result of minor adjustments merged Monday in the famously thin air and fat dimensions of Coors Field. Lynn solved it. Adams flaunted it. Lynn held the host Colorado Rockies to three hits through his eight shutout...

Matt Adams Really Loves His Dad

Big City.  Big Country.  Big Mayo. There’s a reason we call Matt Adams Big Fill-In-The-Blank on this blog.  There are so many nicknames floating around for him, all based on the idea that he’s a big guy.  On a weekend where we lost a pop culture legend, though, it seems appropriate to reach back into Casey Kasem’s heyday to pull out another nom de plume. The Big Bopper...
