Wallace has six-RBI game for Sags

... Cards' prospect Brett Wallace is revving up in the Arizona Fall League.

According to Wallace, he's accomplishing what he wanted, getting some valuable experience in the league from some of the better players at a sub-major status, many of whom have played at the major league level at some point.

Wallace's bat is the focal point, although he's most certainly getting every kind of baseball instruction needed to compete at the highest level of play.

As for that bat, what has the media attracting to Wallace is a recent performance, in which he hit a three-run homer and cracked a two-run double on a 4-for-5 outing, these stats according to the Official Web Site of the St. Louis Cardinals (full story at link below).

Wallace is currently playing for the Peoria Saguaros, who outdid the Scottsdale Scorpions 11-7.

Another Cardinal on the Sags, Shane Robinson, center fielder, went 1-for-3 with a double, scoring two runs and collecting an RBI.

Tyler Norrick and Brad Furnish pitched in the same contest, Norrick earning a hold.
