In case you missed it, Matt Adams made Cardinals history at last night's sixteen-inning game.

After hitting home runs in the fourteenth and sixteenth innings, Adams became the first player on the team to ever hit two extra-inning home runs (securing the Cardinals a 5-4 win over Cincinnati).

"It feels good," Adams said after the game, regarding his second multi-homer game in his career. "It would feel good to anybody, especially against the team we're battling for a playoff spot."
