It was Walker's 16th home run and fifth game-winning RBI of the season.


John King (2-1) allowed one run in one inning for the win, and Ryan Helsley earned his 11th save in 15 opportunities.


Goldschmidt broke a 3-all tie with a solo homer in the fifth. Alec Burleson followed with a double and Nolan Arenado singled to push the St. Louis lead to 5-3.


Goldschmidt extended his on-base streak to 13 games.


Goldschmidt had a two-run double in the third.


Cardinals starter Dakota Hudson, who went 4-1 in August, permitted three runs and five hits in five innings.
