Paul Goldschmidt drove in four runs to power the St. Louis Cardinals past the visiting New York Yankees 11-4 Saturday in the first game of a day-night doubleheader, delayed more than two hours by bad weather
Goldschmidt hit a three-run homer and a sacrifice fly for the Cardinals, who won for the seventh time in 11 games. Nolan Gorman hit a two-run homer, Tommy Edman went 2-for-4 with two runs and an RBI, and Andrew Knizner went 2-for-4 with two runs and two RBIs
Yankees starting pitcher Luis Severino (1-3) allowed nine runs (seven earned) on nine hits and three walks in four innings
The Cardinals surged to a 5-0 lead in the bottom of the third inning. Edman and Knizner hit singles to open the frame and Goldschmidt lined his homer over the right-field fence with one out
Gorman walked and Nolan Arenado reached on an error. Both advanced on a foul flyout, then Alec Burleson and Paul DeJong hit RBI singles.
St. Louis expanded its lead to 7-0 in the fourth inning. Lars Nootbaar doubled and Gorman launched his homer two batters later. Arenado poked a double into the right-center field gap, but Jordan Walker flew out to strand him.
Burleson led off the fifth inning with a double and DeJong walked, ending Severino’s day. Edman hit an RBI single, then Knizner hit a two-run double off reliever Matt Krook.
Knizner took third on a wild pitch, Nootbaar walked and Goldschmidt hit a sacrifice fly to make it 11-0.
The Yankees finally broke through off reliever James Naile in the seventh inning. A single by Isiah Kiner-Falefa, a one-out single by Anthony Volpe, a passed ball and a one-out RBI single by Oswaldo Cabrera put the Yankees on the board
After a 2-hour, 19-minute rain delay, play resumed in the bottom of the seventh.
The Yankees cut their deficit to 11-4 in the ninth inning on DJ LeMahieu’s run-scoring double play groundout and Jake Bauer’s two-run homer
