Jose Martínez’s two-run home run in the first inning off Trevor Richards provided all the offense the Cardinals would need as they would go on to beat the Fish, 4-1. Miles Mikolas muted the Marlins’ bats.
Called up to start before the game, St. Louis-area native Richards continued his underdog story in front of his friends and family. His high school sweetheart’s explained how special that was:
