Power Pauls: Goldschmidt, DeJong homer as Cardinals, Kim take Game 1 vs. Mets, 4-1

A home run that would have put out a light staked the Cardinals to an early lead and a home run out of reach put away the first game of Wednesday’s doubleheader against the Mets.

In between, Kwang Hyun Kim pitched expertly around his own walks, two lengthy delays, and one confusing check of the rule book to escape a bases-loaded mess in the fourth inning and maintain the Cardinals’ lead on the way to a 4-1 victory at Busch Stadium and their sixth consecutive win.

Paul Goldschmidt tagged a first-pitch home run in the first inning off the updated sign for the Big Mac Land.
