And he sure had a night to remember against the Toronto Blue Jays on Monday, as he won the game for St. Louis in “grand” style.
The Cardinals had rallied from a late 3-1 deficit to tie the game and force extra innings.
In the bottom of the 10th, the bases were loaded with two outs.
After Harrison Bader and Albert Pujols failed to come through, it was up to Goldschmidt, who worked a 1-2 count before sending a grand slam over the left field wall off Ryan Borucki to win it for St. Louis.
MLB tweeted the video of the grand slam from Bally Sports Midwest.
STAY GOLD 🙌
WALK-OFF GRAND SLAM🚨‼️

In “GRAND” Style
This is what the Cardinals brought Goldschmidt in to do.
He came to St. Louis to help the team end a three-year postseason drought and carry the organization back to prominence.
He has done just that, proving to be that veteran presence in a lineup that desperately needed it.
Goldschmidt has always been a guy who has had a knack for coming through in the clutch, and he provided that spark late in the game for St. Louis, sending the Busch Stadium faithful into a frenzy.
And once he touched home plate, his teammates gave him a shower of water and popcorn.
With the 7-3 win, the Cardinals won their fourth straight game and improved to 24-18 on the season, moving to within two games of the Milwaukee Brewers for first place.
Even after having previously gone 0-for-4, Goldschmidt was still there for the Cardinals when they needed him, and he got the job done.
