Cards walk off in ninth for sweep of D-backs
AP
(MLB.com) With a pair of ninth-inning runs the latter scoring on a throwing error by catcher Jordan Pacheco off reliever Brad Ziegler, the Cardinals stole a 4-3 win over the D-backs on Wednesday night, giving St. Louis its second walk-off victory in the three-game set and a sweep of Arizona at Busch Stadium.

Jason Heyward opened the inning by quickly tying the game with his fourth home run of the year. The Cardinals then loaded the bases with one out, bringing up Jhonny Peralta, who had delivered a walk-off homer two days earlier. This time, he grounded into what was nearly an inning-ending double play, but Pacheco's throw to first sailed well over the head of first baseman Paul Goldschmidt. Matt Carpenter jogged home from third with winning run.

The win was the Cardinals' first this season when trailing after eight innings. Contrastingly, Arizona had been 18-1 when carrying a lead into the ninth. Ziegler entered the game riding a string of seven scoreless appearances ...     [ More ]
