Matt Adams homered for the third-straight game and finished Sunday 1-for-4 with the home run, two RBI and a run scored against the Nationals.

Adams has shown the Cardinals that they were right to send Osacar Taveras down once he came off the disabled list and let him go back to full-time duty at first. Since his return, he is 4-for-11 (.364) with three home runs, four RBI and three runs scored. While he certainly won't keep this torrid pace up, you should be riding this wave until it breaks.ANALYST: Howard Bender Mobile App
