(BaseballStL) -- The once ice-cold Jon Jay has thawed from a dismal first half to lead the Cardinals to another win after blasting a go-ahead two-run home run in an 8-5 win over the Milwaukee Brewers on Monday.
Jay smacked his second home run in as many days, and seventh of the season, over the center field wall at Miller Park to give the Cardinals a 4-2 lead in the sixth inning. It marked his 27th hit and 17th RBI in August.
He finished 1-for-4 with a walk in the victory.
In Sunday’s 6-1 over the Chicago Cubs, Jay hit a three-run home run and drove in another run to set a career-high of 4 RBI in a game.
