Cosart, Marlins beat Wainwright, Cards

Cards vs. Marlins tonight at 6:05 on 98.3 WTIM

Miami,  FL  (SportsNetwork.com) - Jarred  Cosart pitched seven shutout innings 
and  earned  his first win with  the Miami Marlins, who  held on for a 3-0 win 
over the St. Louis Cardinals on Tuesday. 

Cosart  (1-1) pitched  for the first time  since making his Marlins debut in a 
5-2  loss to Cincinnati on Aug. 1, a day after he was acquired from Houston in 
a six-player trade at the non-waiver deadline. 

His  spot was skipped  in the rotation because of a sore oblique but he showed 
no  ill  signs against the Cardinals, giving up just  three hits and one walk 
while striking out three to pick up his 10th victory over the season. 

"He was great," said Marlins manager Mike Redmond. "You never really know when 
a  guy takes that  many days off what you're going to get but I think the time 
off for him was good. He was sharp." 

Donovan  Solano hit a  two-run homer for Miami, which has won four of its last 
five, including the first two games of this three-game series. 

The Cardinals, who  have lost four of five, never really threatened until the 
ninth  inning, when  they had runners at the corners against Bryan Morris. But 
Mike  Dunn came  in to  strike out  Matt Adams  and earn  his first  save this 
season. 

The  Marlins scored all three of their runs off Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright, 
who was trying to become the majors' first 15-game winner this season. Instead 
Wainwright (14-7) allowed seven hits and a walk in seven innings. 

Wainwright  pitched out  of a bases-loaded jam in the first inning by striking 
out Garrett Jones and Jarrod Saltalamacchia, but the Marlins scored three runs 
off him in the fourth to take the lead. 

Casey  McGehee led off with a double and scored on Saltalamacchia's single and 
Solano hit a two-out homer off the left-field pole to make it 3-0. 

St. Louis' only baserunners in the first five innings were Mark Ellis, who hit 
a  one-out single in the third, and Oscar Tavares, who walked in the fifth and 
was erased on a double play. 

Cosart  escaped the sixth  after giving up a leadoff single to Ellis, who went 
to  second  when Matt  Carpenter reached on  an error. Jon  Jay singled in the 
seventh but went nowhere.
