Yadier Molina hit a walk-off RBI single Wednesday as the Cardinals edged the Marlins. It's the second straight walk-off win for the Cards, as they won on a walk-off home run by Paul Goldschmidt on Tuesday. Goldschmidt scored the winning run again in this one, reaching on a leadoff error in the bottom of the ninth and coming around to touch home plate after Molina scorched one down the third base line with one out. It's the eighth career regular season walk-off RBI of Yadi's career.
