Andy Benes provided yet another ineffective outing, squandering a 3-0 lead as the St. Louis Cardinals lost in Miami to the Florida Marlins 4-3. Benes lasted just 4 1/3 innings, allowing all four runs on nine hits and five walks. The righthander is now 1-2. The Redbirds were stymied by the Marlin bullpen. Four relievers combined to throw five shutout innings of work at the Cards with Vladamir Nunez picking up the win. J.D. Drew had a big game in defeat for St. Louis, going 3-4 with his 9th home run of the season.
