The Cardinals saw one get away from them, losing to Arizona 10-3, which was highlighted by a five-run seventh inning, which included a grand slam from Paul Goldschmidt, the hero of the game two nights before. Goldschmidt also hit a grand slam at Chicago earlier this week and has 14 homers and leads the NL with 53 RBIs, including 12 in his past five games.
Joe Kelly (0-3), making his first start of the season, gave up one earned run in 5.2 innings. He was pushed into a spot start due to a day-night doubleheader on Saturday, which pushed back Shelby Miller’s start to Thursday.
Offensively, Matt Carpenter went 4 for 5, extending his hitting streak to 14 games. This comes after he was plunked three times the game before. David Freese extended his hitting streak to 15 games to raise his average to .279.
