ST. LOUIS (BaseballStL) – There is no need to adjust your eyes.  Yes, Skip Schumaker hit a homerun.

It isn’t quite as rare as a blue moon or solar eclipse, but Schumaker crushed his first home run of the season in the 5-4 win over the Mets on Monday afternoon.

Schumaker hit a 389 foot solo shot to right field in the fourth inning to give the Cards a 4-0 lead at the time.  It was his first home run since June 19, a span of 466 at-bats.
