Goldschmidt hits game-ending HR, Cardinals beat Marlins 2-1

St. Louis Cardinals

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Paul Goldschmidt hit a game-ending homer in the ninth inning and drove in both St. Louis runs as the Cardinals beat the Miami Marlins 2-1.

St. Louis has won two in a row against the Marlins after dropping nine of 10 overall. Miami lost its third straight.

Goldschmidt, who had a tying RBI single in the sixth, led off the ninth and fell behind 1-2 in the count before he drilled a 98 mph fastball from Yimi Garcia to right-center field for his sixth career walk-off home run.

The previous one also came against the Marlins in June 2019 to give St. Louis a 2-1 victory in 11 innings.

Alex Reyes worked a scoreless ninth for the win.
