Gorman snaps slump with walk-off homer to give Cardinals 5-3 win over Diamondbacks

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Nolan Gorman snapped an 0-for-19 slump with a two-run homer in the bottom of the ninth inning that gave the St. Louis Cardinals a 5-3 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Monday night.

It was the fourth home run this season for Gorman, who entered as a defensive replacement in the eighth. Paul Goldschmidt, who homered earlier, reached on an infield single before Gorman hit left-hander Kyle Nelson's only pitch into the right-field seats.

Ryan Helsley (2-2) worked a scoreless inning to help the Cardinals halt a four-game losing streak.

Ryan Thompson (0-1) took the loss.

Eugenio Suárez sparked Arizona with three hits and two RBIs.
