(MIAMI) — It was opening night for baseball in America as the St. Louis Cardinals spoiled the Miami Marlins first game at Marlins’ Park. Cardinals pitcher Kyle Lohse pitched 7 1/3 innings of one run ball, as St. Louis (1-0) beat Miami (0-1) 4-1.
Lohse took a no-hitter into the seventh inning before allowing a single to shortstop Jose Reyes.
“I just felt good,” Lohse said. “Our defense played well behind me.”
The Cardinals started the scoring early. World Series MVP David Freese hit a two-run single in the top of the first giving the Red Birds all the scoring they would need.
The Cardinals will get a day off before heading to Milwaukee to take on the Brewers.
