Goldschmidt hits tying homer in 9th, winner in 11th to lift Arizona to 4-3 win over Orioles

Paul Goldschmidt hit the first pitch of the 11th inning for a game-ending home run after leading off the ninth with a tying homer, helping the Arizona Diamondbacks beat Baltimore 4-3 on Tuesday night for their second straight walkoff victory over the Orioles.

Arizona won the series opener on Monday when Adam Eaton hit the first pitch of the ninth inning into the pool in right field.

Goldschmidt matched him with his second game-ending homer of the homestand, lifting the first pitch by T.J. McFarland (1-1) just over the wall in right for his 29th homer and Arizona's 25th win in its last at-bat.

Goldschmidt put himself in position for his third career walk-off homer, opening the ninth inning with a shot off closer Jim Johnson.

Heath Bell (3-1) worked a perfect 11th inning, and Gerardo Parra hit his career high-tying eighth homer for Arizona.
