A Baseball Game That Counts

Welcome to Opening American soil Opening Day Night!

The defending World Series champion St. Louis Cardinals venture into the dark and damp realm of Miami to play the Florida Miami Marlins at a baseball game that counts in the Regular Season standings and stat books and not in the Grapefruit or Cactus League standings and stat books. Lineups!

Rafael Furcal SS Jose Reyes SS
Carlos Beltran RF Emilio Bonifacio CF
Matt Holliday LF Hanley Ramirez 3B
Lance Berkman 1B Mike Stanton RF
David Freese 3B Logan Morrison LF
Yadier Molina C Gaby Sanchez 1B
John Jay CF Omar Infante 2B
Daniel Descalso 2B John Buck C
Kyle Lohse P Josh Johnson P

These two teams kick off (again) the Major League season and open up the Marlins' new park of baseball with tonight's first game of a... one game series? Seriously? Miami travels to Cincinnati tomorrow? And the Cardinals go to Milwaukee on Friday? What the flying fudgsicles, baseball?
