      Marlins beat the Cardinals two out of three

      Ricky Nolasco allowed one run and three hits in seven innings Sunday to help the Miami Marlins take the rubber game of their three-game series against the St. Louis Cardinals, 7-2.

      NL Central leader St. Louis lost a series for the first time since April 26-28 against Pittsburgh.

      The Marlins climbed above .300 at 21-47, still baseball's worst record.

      They scored 19 runs in the series against a team with the lowest ERA in the majors.

      The abundance of offense was a refreshing change for Nolasco (4-7), who has endured the worst run support of any pitcher with at least 14 starts.

      Luxuriating in a lead, he retired 11 in a row during one stretch.
