It’s no secret that the 2023 season has not gone according to plan for the St. Louis Cardinals.
The same can be said for MVP finalist and star third baseman Nolan Arenado.
However, the team just completed a three-game sweep over the Boston Red Sox and have now won six of their last seven games.
Arenado had himself quite an impressive weekend at Fenway Park, and it all began with a two-run homer in the first inning off of James Paxton on Friday.
From there Arenado was locked in, and he ultimately homered in all three games at Fenway.
On Twitter, the Cardinals posted some of Arenado’s impressive numbers from the recent weekend series.

Arenado was certainly locked in at the plate over the weekend, and may in fact be turning the corner, similar to what could be happening with the Cardinals as a whole.
The veteran slugger went 7-for-14 in the three games against the Red Sox.
He hit three home runs and drove in seven runs.
That impressive weekend series also included a two-run single on Sunday night to help St. Louis extend their lead to 6-1 over the Sox.
The final score on Sunday was 9-1 in favor of the Cardinals.
But it was Arenado who led the way for St. Louis as they climbed back into contention in the NL Central and the NL Wild Card race.
With his impressive series at Fenway, Arenado bumped his batting average up to .256 on the year and his home run total up to six.NEXT: Cardinals Outfielder Experienced A Wholesome Mother's Day Moment
