Nolan Gorman, Cards take care of Phillies in 10th

cardinals

Nolan Gorman hit a two-run homer and smacked the decisive RBI single as the visiting St. Louis Cardinals edged the Philadelphia Phillies 5-4 in 10 innings on Sunday night.

Alec Burleson added a two-run homer for the Cardinals, who avoided a three-game sweep.

St. Louis starter Lance Lynn allowed four unearned runs on three hits and two walks in four-plus innings. He struck out four. Relievers Matthew Liberatore, Ryan Fernandez, JoJo Romero, Andrew Kittredge and John King (2-1) combined for five shutout innings to get the game into extra innings.

Ryan Helsley shut down the Phillies in the 10th inning for his 19th save of the season.

Bryson Stott drove in two runs for the Phillies, while Nick Castellanos went 2-for-5 with a run, recording his 1,500th career hit in the process.

Phillies starting pitcher Taijuan Walker allowed four runs on five hits and three walks in five innings. He fanned five. Matt Strahm, Orion Kerkering, Jeff Hoffman and Jose Alvarado each pitched a scoreless inning of relief for Philadelphia.

Gregory Soto (1-3) took the loss, which was compounded by the loss of outfielder Brandon Marsh, who suffered a right hamstring strain while running the bases in the eighth inning.

St. Louis took a 2-0 lead in the first. Masyn Winn led off the game with a single, and Gorman lifted a two-out homer to right.

The Phillies exploited a Cardinals fielding mishap to tie the game at 2-2 in the second inning. Marsh walked and Castellanos reached on Winn’s fielding error on a potential double-play grounder.

Garrett Stubbs capitalized with an RBI double, and Johan Rojas added a run-scoring groundout.

The Cardinals went back in front in the third inning when Winn walked and Burleson hit his homer for a 4-2 lead.

Philadelphia played small ball while tying the game at 4-all in the fifth. Stubbs and Rojas reached base on bunts that the Cardinals mishandled. Kyle Schwarber then lined a single to right to load the bases, and Stott hit a two-run single to chase Lynn.

Gorman hit a two-out RBI single in the 10th inning to put the Cardinals up 5-4.
