Former Redbird Tommy Pham hits first MLB home run

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Former Memphis Redbird outfielder Tommy Pham hit his first MLB home run Sunday as the Cardinals took on the Padres.

This is Pham’s third big league start after being called up from Triple-A on Friday. His third start was a strong one. Pham homered, doubled, and drove in three runs. Pham also scored both runs in the Saturday win.

Lance Lynn struck out eight and gave up three hits in seven innings. He also gave up one unearned run. Lynn has won his last six starts.

Kevin Seigrist came in and recorded his fourth save.

The Padres only run came thanks to a Matt Kemp single in the third,

Cardinals went on to win 3-1 and hold a league best 33-11 record at home.

Tim Cooney, another former Redbird, was called back up to St. Louis and will start Tuesday when the Cardinals face the Chicago Cubs.
