Luke Weaver was outdueled by Wei-Yin Chen as the Cardinals lost 2-1 to the Marlins in Miami. Weaver allowed two runs in six frames to fall to 6-and-10. Matt Carpenter’s bases-loaded walk broke up the shutout in the ninth for St. Louis, but Yadier Molina grounded into a 6-4-3 double play to end the game. Marcell Ozuna had three hits in defeat in his return to Miami.
>>Cardinals Call Up Garcia
The Cardinals have a new outfielder in the mix. Adolis Garcia had his contract purchased from Triple-A Memphis before last night’s game in Miami. He helps fill the void with Tyler O’Neill on the disabled list, Dexter Fowler injured and Tommy Pham traded to Tampa Bay.
