1945 Augie Bergamo bangs out eight hits, helping the Cardinals to sweep a twin bill from the Giants, 8-4 and 19-2. The 28 year-old Redbird right fielder collects 11 total bases and drives in eight runs in the Polo Grounds nightcap when he hits three singles, a two-run home run, and a grand slam.
2000 Keith McDonald, who will go deep three times in only nine plate appearances this season, becomes only the third player in Cardinal history to homer in his first career at-bat when pinch-hits a home run in the team's 14-3 victory over the Reds at Busch Stadium. Eddie Morgan [1936] and Wally Moon [1954] are the other Redbirds to accomplish the feat.
