June 2, 1925: Jim Bottomley Leads The Way

On June 2, 1925, "Sunny Jim" Bottomley led the Cardinals charge with two home runs in an 8-2 victory over the Reds at Sportsman's Park. The Cardinals first baseman's first blast was of the Grand Slam variety, it came in the 5th and put the team on top 4-2 and they didn't look back. The next day they knocked off the Reds 7-3 to complete a 4 game sweep over the Cincy squad, Bottomley went 2-4 with a double, a stolen base, and a run scored in the final game of the series.
