Pham sparks Cards' win with bat and arm
Getty
(MLB.com) For Tommy Pham, fresh off a homer in the 11th inning of Tuesday's win over the Phillies, Wednesday was a repeat showing of sorts.

Plus a special feature.

Pham bashed two homers in the 7-6 win on Wednesday night. The first, a solo homer, got the Cards on the board in the fifth, their first step back after trailing, 5-0. His second cleared the fence in center and tied the score at 5 in the ninth off Phillies closer Hector Neris.

Entering that extra-inning at-bat on Tuesday, Pham had 20 homers in 448 career at-bats. In his next five at-bats, he homered three times. He now leads the Cardinals with five multi-homer games over the last three seasons despite ranking 13th in games played over that span.

Not content to let his bat do all the talking, the left fielder threw out the would-be walk-off run at home plate in the ninth.

"I was surprised that he went, because when the ball was in the corner, I was just trying to make sure it ...     [ More ]
