MIAMI – Yadier Molina hit a tiebreaking sacrifice fly off former batterymate Sandy Alcantara to cap a three-run rally in the sixth inning that sent the St. Louis Cardinals over Miami Marlins 4-2.
Dylan Carson hit his second homer of the season for an insurance run in the ninth.
Alcantara was traded by St. Louis in a package to Miami for Marcell Ozuna in December 2017.
Alcantara tied a career high with 10 strikeouts in the first five innings, shutting out the Cardinals on two hits.
A passed ball, an RBI grounder and Molina’s fly put the Cardinals ahead.
