Max Meyer , a 25-year-old right-hander, got his first major league win in his fourth start and appearance. Meyer allowed one run and three hits in six innings, striking out three and walking one.

He had Tommy John surgery on Aug. 9, 2022, and returned to a major league mound this April 1, when he pitched five innings without a decision against the Los Angeles Angels.

Meyer retired his first 13 batters before Nolan Gorman homered on a drive that bounced off the glove of a leaping Chisholm at the center-field wall. Gorman hit his first two home runs this season, adding a two-run drive in the ninth off Matt Andriese for his seventh career multi-homer game.

Kyle Gibson allowed seven runs and seven hits over six innings in his home debut for St. Louis.

TRAINER’S ROOM

Marlins: LHP Braxton Garrett allowed two runs on three hits and struck out five throwing 66 pitches in 4 1/3 innings in a rehabilitation start with Triple-A Jacksonville.

Cardinals: RHP Sonny Gray will start Tuesday against Philadelphia. Cardinals manager Oliver Marmol says Gray will be held to a pitch count of approximately 65 pitches.

UP NEXT

Marlins: LHP Jesús Luzardo matches up against Yankees LHP Nester Cortes to start a three-game series in New York Monday night.
