MIAMI (AP) — Javy Guerra kept closer Kyle Barraclough’s struggles from costing Miami a victory Monday night.Guerra cleaned up a ninth-inning mess created by Barraclough Allen Craig Jersey , getting Yadier Molina to hit into a double play to end the Marlins‘ 2-1 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals.“It was important to be ready,” Guerra said. “I think overall I went in there prepared and got the right results. It went well.”After Wei-Yin Chen (4-8) pitched 5 2/3 innings of one-hit ball, Miami led 2-0 going into the ninth and handed the game off to Barraclough.Paul DeJong and Harrison Bader opened the inning with hard-hit singles, then Yairo Munoz walked. Pinch-hitter Kolten Wong struck out looking, but Matt Carpenter drew a bases-loaded walk to make it 2-1 and end Barraclough’s night.“Carp works the walk and then you’ve got the guy that you want up there every night in that situation with Yadi,” Cardinals interim manager Mike Shildt said.Guerra got Molina, a career .309 hitter with the bases loaded, to bounce into a double play for his first save since Sept. 27, 2014 while with the Chicago White Sox.“He saved (21 of 22) games for me in LA (in 2011),” Mattingly said. “I’ve seen him be in bases-loaded jams with nobody out and get out of them, so I know he’s a guy who’s not going to panic in that spot.”Barraclough had blown his last three save chances, allowing 10 runs in 2 1/3 innings.His role could be in jeopardy.“I think he’s healthy,” Mattingly said. “If he’s not healthy, he’s not telling us, which I don’t think is the case, but it’s something that obviously you’re not going to sit here and make any kind of decisions quickly after a game. We just won a game and we wouldn’t do anything without talking to him about it anyway.”Starlin Castro had two hits, including his ninth home run for the Marlins, who returned home after a six-game winless road trip.Former Miami All-Star Marcell Ozuna returned for his first game at Marlins Park after being traded to St. Louis in the offseason and went 3 for 4 tying his season-high with hits in a game.“It was good to see Marcie come home http://www.padresfanproshop.com/authentic-tony-gwynn-jersey ,” Shildt said. “He was happy to get home. He felt good about it. He likes it here and it was good to see he was received warmly as you would expect.”Luke Weaver (6-10) allowed two runs and seven hits in six innings for St. Louis.Derek Dietrich doubled to begin the game for the Marlins and scored on a check-swing hit by Brian Anderson.Castro’s home run to left in the fourth gave Miami a 2-0 lead.With one on and one out in the seventh, Munoz grinded out a 14-pitch at-bat, but Tayron Guerrero prevailed with a groundout. Pinch-hitter Greg Garcia struck out to end the inning.Ozuna beat out an infield hit in the eighth, giving Jedd Gyorko an at-bat with runners on first and second with two outs. Drew Steckenrider was able to get out of the jam as Gyorko flew out to deep center.OZUNA TRIBUTEOzuna was given a video tribute during the game, and he tipped his cap to acknowledge the appreciation.“That was impressive for me,” Ozuna said. “I didn’t even know they were going to do that for me. I appreciated it.”CHEN STRONG AT HOMEChen improved to 3-2 with a 1.94 ERA in nine home starts this season compared to 1-6 with a 10.27 ERA in nine road starts.“He never looks really any different at home or the road, it’s just that he’s pitched so much better here and that’s really the only difference,” Mattingly said. “You see his work, you see his preparation, it’s no different. It’s not like he’s serious here and then he goes on the road and he’s yucking it up and not taking it serious.”TRAINER’S ROOMCardinals: OF Tyler O’Neill (groin) was placed on the 10-day disabled list retroactive to Aug. 4. … RHP Adam Wainwright (elbow) is planning on throwing a bullpen session either Tuesday or Wednesday.Marlins: RHP Sandy Alcantara (armpit) was reinstated from the 10-day disabled list and optioned to Triple-A New Orleans.UP NEXTCardinals: RHP Miles Mikolas (11-3, 2.75 ERA) is scheduled to start the second game of the series Tuesday night. Mikolas has allowed three runs or fewer in eight consecutive starts.Marlins: RHP Pablo Lopez (2-2, 4.67) allowed one run in six innings his last start, a no-decision at Philadelphia. KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The St. Louis Cardinals were a .500 team after a loss on July 25, but since then they’ve been the hottest team in the National League.Yadier Molina broke a tie with a two-run single in the seventh inning, Tyson Ross won his St. Louis debut and the Cardinals defeated the Kansas City Royals 8-2 on Sunday to win their fifth straight, matching a season high.The Cardinals moved eight games above .500, equaling their season high set on June 11 http://www.padresfanproshop.com/authentic-dave-winfield-jersey , and are a National League-best 12-4 since July 27. Manager Mike Matheny was fired on July 14 in an attempt to jump-start the disappointing team.Molina’s bases-loaded single in the seventh scored Harrison Bader and Patrick Wisdom, who had two hits, drove in a run and scored two in his major league debut. Wisdom’s RBI single had tied it at 2-2.“We feel pretty good about ourselves right now,” Molina said. “We are getting hot at the right time.”The Cardinals concluded a three-city trip with a 7-2 record.“It was a good game, a good road trip and a good series,” Cardinals interim manager Mike Shildt said.Ross, who last pitched on Aug. 3 for San Diego, was an emergency starter, replacing Luke Weaver, who was scratched after cutting his right index finger on the aluminum foil cover of his clubhouse meal on Saturday night.Ross (7-9), who made 22 starts with the Padres before the Cardinals claimed him on waivers last week, allowed two runs on four hits and two walks in six innings.“I felt good and was ready to go,” Ross said. “I was happy to get out there and pitch. After the first inning, I was able to rein it in and get into the strike zone, and keep us in the ballgame.”Paul DeJong hit a two-run homer in a three-run ninth to cap the scoring.Jason Hammel (2-12) entered in the seventh and retired none of the four batters he faced. He was charged with three runs.“I set the tone for the rest of the game right there, coming in and not even getting an out,” Hammel said. “I’m embarrassed.”Jakob Junis limited the Cardinals to three singles, walked none and struck out eight before leaving after six innings with a 2-1 lead.“I hit my spots with my fastball and played my slider off that and I had some good results Rollie Fingers Jersey ,” Junis said.Lucas Duda singled home Salvador Perez in the third to put Kansas City up 2-1. Alex Gordon scored in the first after an error by Wisdom, the first baseman.The Royals have lost nine of 10 and are 15-46 since May 30.WEBB EJECTEDCardinals reliever Tyler Webb was ejected with two outs in the ninth by plate umpire Adam Hamari after he hit Jorge Bonifacio with a pitch. Royals pitchers hit four St. Louis batters. “He definitely hit him on purpose,” Royals manager Ned Yost said. “I guess that warrants an ejection. We hit four guys today. When you hit four guys, somebody is going to get it. It’s just the way the game is. I don’t blame them for it. If they hit us four times, we’d probably be upset, too. Did he have to get ejected? No. I don’t think so. I think it was over. We didn’t intentionally try to hit anybody all day long.”CARPENTER STREAK CONTINUESMatt Carpenter singled and was hit by a pitch from Wily Peralta, extending his on-base streak to 30 games.HERRERA AT SECONDRosell Herrera made his first start at second base for the Royals. He had started 19 games in right field, 11 in center, four at third base and three as the DH since joining the club on June 17. He made his big league debut on May 1 with Cincinnati starting at second base, his only other start at the position, although he played there in the minors.ROSTER MOVESThe Royals optioned RHP Glenn Sparkman to Triple-A Omaha.TRAINER’S ROOMRoyals: LHP Danny Duffy has a stiff shoulder. Manager Ned Yost said Duffy has been dealing with it for his past four starts and a decision would be made Tuesday on whether Duffy will make his scheduled start on Thursday. Duffy received an anti-inflammatory shot Saturday. … RHP Blaine Boyer (lower back strain) was activated from the 60-day disabled list. He posted a 1.08 ERA in eight minor league rehab appearances. … OF Jorge Soler (left toe fracture) was transferred to the 60-day DL.Cardinals: RHP Adam Wainwright (elbow inflammation) will throw an inning Monday for the Palm Beach Cardinals in the Florida State League. … With RHP Luke Gregerson (shoulder impingement) moved to the 60-day DL, his season is likely over. “I guess the timing looks like, yeah,” Shildt said. “It’ll be a challenge, but we never say never.”UP NEXTCardinals: RHP Miles Mikolas will start the opener of a four-game series against the Washington Nationals at Busch Stadium.Royals: Rookie RHP Brad Keller will start against Toronto. This will be his 13th start since moving into the rotation on May 30.
