(Jupiter, FL) Paul Goldschmidt hit his third homerun of the spring this (Sunday) afternoon, one day after he officially had agreed to a five-year, $130 million contract extension with the St. Louis Cardinals. That was the only run until a one-out single by Evan Mendoza in the bottom of the ninth gave the Redbirds the win, 2-1 over the Miami Marlins.
This was the final Grapefruit League game for the Cardinals who finish the spring season at 12-15. St. Louis will travel to Milwaukee where they’ll open the regular season against the Brewers on Thursday afternoon. First pitch is slated for 1:10.
