MIAMI (AP) -- Kyle Lohse didn't allow a hit until the seventh inning and pitched into the eighth Wednesday night to help the World Series champion St. Louis Cardinals spoil the Miami Marlins' debut in their new ballpark, 4-1.
The Marlins' new animated home-run sculpture never budged. It was the fourth inning before they managed a baserunner, and but the time they scored in the eighth, they trailed 4-0.
The crowd of 36,601 included newly retired Cardinals manager Tony La Russa, who quietly rooted for his former team from the press box. Lohse went 7 1-3 innings, allowing only two hits and one run.
David Freese, the World Series MVP, had a two-run single in the first inning to give Lohse the cushion he needed.
