The Cardinals and Marlins game was moved up six hours because of Hurricane Charley. Someone forgot to tell the Cardinals. Their seven-game winning streak was snapped with an 8-2 loss in Miami. St. Louis starter Matt Morris was tagged four eight runs, but only four of them were earned, as his teammates committed three errors on the day. Larry Walker hit his first home run as a Cardinal in the loss—it was his seventh of the season. The Marlins led 3-2 in the seventh when they exploded for five runs, knocking Morris out of the ballgame. He dropped to 12-8. Tony LaRussa rested starters Tony Womack, Albert Pujols, Scott Rolen, Reggie Sanders and Mike Matheny.
