I didn't realize this until I just read it.
OK, we now return you to the regular Bird Land blog already in progress ...
The Church of Clutch hasn't had a chance to warm up its vocal chords yet this season, but when it does perhaps it can turn to the Book of Holliday for the update stats after his two-run homer broke a 1-1 tie last night against Arizona starter Trevor Cahill. According to the home run database kept by Tom Orf, left field Matt Holliday tops the current era of Cardinals when it comes to putting the team ahead in the sixth inning or later with a home run. The leaders, from 2009-2013, and No. 3 on the list might surprise you because he hasn't taken an at-bat for the Cardinals since mid-2011:
Matt Holliday 13
Albert Pujols 11
Colby Rasmus 5
Yadier Molina 5
Lance Berkman 4
Allen Craig 3
Ryan Ludwick 3
Rick Ankiel 3
