Brad Penny and Ugeth Urbina were almost untouchable on Monday as the Marlins beat the Cardinals 4-0. Penny allowed four hits over seven innings and Urbina gave up one over the last two. Woody Williams was trying for his 15th win of the season and despite pitching well over most of the seven innings of his outing, he allowed three runs in the fourth and another in the fifth inning. His teammates performance at the plate left much to be desired as they failed to get anything going on the base paths. Albert Pujols had two of St. Louis’ five hits, which extended his hitting streak to career-high 19 games. He’s hitting .413 during the streak. Tonight a couple of rookies will battle on the hill. Danny Haren, who has a record of 2-2 will face National League Rookie of the Year candidate Dontrell Willis who enters with a record of 10-2 and a 2.50 ERA.
