WGIL Newsroom . State Sports 108

St Louis CardinalsST. LOUIS (AP) — Arizona shortstop Chris Owings threw wildly to the plate on a bases-loaded grounder in the 12th inning, allowing Matt Holliday to score the winning run in the St. Louis Cardinals’ 3-2 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Wednesday night.

The Cardinals cut down the go-ahead run at the plate in the 10th on Daniel Descalso’s perfect relay throw from down the left field line to nail Ender Inciarte trying to score from first on Paul Goldschmidt’s two-out double.

Holliday walked off Trevor Cahill to start the 12th. Matt Adams doubled and Yadier Molina was walked intentionally. Allen Craig hit a grounder and Owings had plenty of time for a force play of the plate but his throw eluded catcher Miguel Montero.

Seth Maness allowed a hit in the 12th for the Cardinals.
