D-backs’ Jarrod Dyson robs Paul Goldschmidt of a home run
It hasn’t been the best of series thus far for St. Louis Cardinals first baseman Paul Goldschmidt against the Arizona Diamondbacks.
And it didn’t get much better for the right-handed slugger on Saturday night.
In the bottom of the third, Goldschmidt hit what would’ve been a two-run home run off D-backs starter Merrill Kelly.
But left fielder Jarrod Dyson had other ideas.
Dyson leaped to make the catch and rob the former Diamondback of both a home run and his first hit of the series to keep the Cardinals lead at 2-1.
Goldschmidt ended the night 0-for-3, reaching base on a Jake Lamb error in the bottom of the first in the Cardinals’ 4-2 win.
The former Diamondback has yet to get a hit in the series, as he went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in Friday night’s 4-2 D-backs win.
