We told you that this wasn't a regular live-blog, and that we wouldn't be keeping you up to speed with all of the game action like we might in the playoffs. But the game action so far demands acknowledgment: in the middle of the seventh inning, the Cardinals are beating the Marlins 3-0, and the Marlins don't yet have a hit against Kyle Lohse.
The Marlins have been hit by Kyle Lohse. One of them has - Emilio Bonifacio, in the foot, in the bottom of the fourth. Outside of that, though, it's been outs. A whole mess of 'em. The Marlins gave their home-run sculpture a test run before the game started, and so far that's accounted for all of the fireworks.
Stay tuned. You already were staying tuned, but stay more tuned.
