Masterson pitches Cardinals past Marlins, 5-2


MIAMI (AP) -- Justin Masterson pitched seven scoreless innings in his best outing since joining the St. Louis Cardinals, and they averted a series sweep by beating the Miami Marlins 5-2 Wednesday.


Masterson, acquired in a trade with Cleveland on July 30, allowed three hits -- all singles -- and no walks and threw only 91 pitches before departing for a pinch hitter.


After recording only six outs in his previous start, he lowered his ERA to 6.00 in three outings with the Cardinals, and 5.14 overall this year.


The 6-foot-6 right-hander improved to 2-1 with St. Louis and 5-6 overall. He also earned his first career RBI in the sixth with a two-out single.


Nathan Eovaldi (6-7) allowed four runs, two earned, in six innings.
