Matt Adams isn’t rusty since returning from the disabled list after suffering a strained left calf on May 29. The first baseman has homered in all three games since he returned, helping the Cardinals sweep the Nationals in a three-game set.
Adams hit a solo shot off of Jordan Zimmermann in the second inning on Friday, a solo shot off of Stephen Strasburg in the seventh inning on Saturday, and a two-run homer off of Doug Fister in the second inning on Sunday afternoon. Even better? Adams’ father was in attendance for all three home runs, including the latest one on Father’s Day.
