|Diamondbacks Beat Cardinals on Walk-Off Home Run
|PHOENIX (AP) -- Chris Young rescued Arizona's much-maligned bullpen with his second homer of the game, a two-run shot in the bottom of the ninth inning that gave the Diamondbacks a 7-5 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals.
Trailing by three going into the ninth, the Cardinals rallied and tied it on a wild pitch by winner Esmerling Vasquez (1-2).
Kyle McClellan (0-2) retired the first two Diamondbacks in the bottom half before Miguel Montero singled and Young hit a drive to left.
Adam LaRoche doubled home two runs in the first inning and added an RBI single in the seventh for Arizona. Young hit a solo homer in the fourth.
