Fish Wrap: Marlins 8, Cardinals 7

With Game three of the Fish/Cards series all tied up at six runs, Mike Stanton crushed a two-run homer to left center in the top of the ninth to give the Marlins an 8-6 lead.

Leo Nunez gave up a pinch-hit home run to Jon Jay in the bottom of the inning to bring the Redbirds within a run, but induced a double play ball from Matt Holliday to end the game and preserve his 11th save of the season. 

The Marlins have taken two of three from the Cardinals, and go for the series win on Thursday afternoon.
