Diaz’s Grand Slam Brings All The Feels
— St. Louis Cardinals (@Cardinals) September 28, 2016
Wow. A night after Dee Gordon hit a leadoff homer in the first game after Jose Fernandez’s death, another one of his friends went yard. Aledmys Diaz, Fernandez’s childhood friend, hit a grand slam after he flew back to St. Louis after his wake on Tuesday morning. As we talked about earlier today, sports are the greatest reality show. Diaz sends it deep in honor of his buddy. What a moment. Cardinals win and stay one game back from San Francisco for the second Wild Card.
