On Thursday, Yadier Molina and Adam Wainwright equaled the Mickey Lolich-Bill Freehan tandem for the most regular-season starts. They were all Cardinals.Even more impressively, Molina DID NOT LEAVE HIS BAT AT HOME.

In in as many at-bats, the St. Louis shortstop hit two home runs, forever cementing this day in Cardinals lore.

If you can believe it, Big Mac land was the destination of his first home run. Yadi was obviously famished.

The second was a little more understated but did the trick. A fifth of his total production before to the game was made up by the three RBIs he collected on the day.

Molina always seems to heat up around this time of year.
