Cardinals Lose on Walkoff Home Run
CINCINNATI (AP) -- Jonny Gomes hit a solo homer with one out in the bottom of the ninth inning Thursday, sending the Cincinnati Reds to their first win of the season, 2-1 over the St. Louis Cardinals.

Gomes connected on a 2-2 pitch from Jason Motte (0-1), brought into the game to face him. Gomes flung his batting helmet away in celebration before pouncing on home plate and getting mobbed by teammates.

Francisco Cordero (1-0) pitched a perfect ninth in relief of Bronson Arroyo, who went the first eight innings and singled home a run. After scoring 17 runs in the first two games, the Cardinals managed only four hits in the series finale.
