MIAMI -- R&B blared in the St. Nike Bills #24 Stephon Gilmore Green Mens Stitched NFL Limited Salute To Service Jersey . Louis Cardinals postgame clubhouse, making conversation difficult, and Justin Masterson reached over to the stereo and turned down the volume so he could talk about his latest outing. Masterson did it all Wednesday-- pitching, hitting and monitoring the music after St. Louis beat the Miami Marlins 5-2. The former Indians ace earned his first career RBI in the sixth with a two-out single. But he was more excited about pitching seven scoreless innings in his best outing since being acquired in a trade with Cleveland on July 30. "I pray to the good lord that this is on the right path," said Masterson, who has struggled for much of the season. "I felt very comfortable. The ball was coming out well and it was heavy. And it was going at guys; thats nice, too." The 6-foot-6 sinkerballer recorded 12 outs on groundballs. He also bounced a grounder through the Miami infield for his RBI, and when asked if he got the ball as a souvenir, he laughed. "I got a W," he said. "Its much better for the team than the ball." Masterson improved to 2-1 with St. Louis and 5-6 overall. He allowed three hits -- all singles -- and no walks and threw only 91 pitches before departing for a pinch hitter. After recording only six outs in his previous start, he lowered his ERA to 6.00 in three outings with the Cardinals, and 5.14 overall this year. "Today was just a great sign of the kind of pitcher he can be when he gets it all put together," manager Mike Matheny said. "It couldnt have happened at a better time." The Marlins were going for their first three-game sweep of the Cardinals since 1996, but they didnt get a runner to second base until the ninth. "Absolutely we wanted to get greedy and try to go for the sweep," Casey McGehee said. "But Masterson threw the ball well." Miami walked in a run and allowed two unearned runs on a pair of errors by second baseman Jordany Valdespin. Nathan Eovaldi (6-7) allowed four runs, two earned, in six innings. Jeff Baker hit a two-run homer for the Marlins, but NL home run and RBI leader Giancarlo Stanton went 0 for 4 with two strikeouts. The Cardinals won despite going 2 for 11 with runners in scoring position. They were 4 for 26 in those situations in the series, which made a two-out, two-run single by Matt Adams in the third inning especially welcome. "Somebody in the dugout yelled real loud, Hey, we got the lead," Matheny said. "That was a nice change of pace." Masterson made the early advantage stand up. "You get two or three runs and you can challenge guys and go after them," he said. FORMER CATCHER Marlins manager Mike Redmond caught Masterson in 2010 when both were with the Indians. "Hes a totally different guy than I caught," Redmond said. "He definitely relies on his location and changes speeds, but he still gets a ton of groundballs. We never got anything going against him." Redmond also caught the Marlins starter Thursday, Brad Penny, when both played for Florida. TRAINERS ROOM Cardinals LF Matt Holliday left the game in the seventh inning when his chronic knee trouble flared up, but he said the problem wasnt serious. Marlins LHP Dan Jennings, who suffered a concussion when he was hit in the head by a line drive on Aug. 7, has been free of symptoms the past two days and played catch before the game. Theres no timetable yet for his return. Redmond said he anticipates that RHP Carter Capps (elbow) and INF Derek Dietrich (wrist) will rejoin the team next month. UP NEXT The Cardinals open a homestand Thursday against the Padres when John Lackey pitches against Eric Stults. Lackey has an 8.25 ERA in two starts since joining St. Louis. Penny pitches Thursday against Arizona and Chase Anderson. Penny has a 1.93 ERA in 23 games against the Diamondbacks. Buckeyes #1 Braxton Miller Red Limited Stitched NCAA Jersey .

UEFA said its disciplinary panel increased the automatic one-match ban to a three-match sanction.ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Last week, Chris Harris marveled at how much Denvers injury-riddled defence had changed and how not a single player who started against Baltimore in last years playoffs would start at the same position against San Diego on the anniversary of that crushing loss. "Weve lost so many guys," he said, shaking his head. "Weve gotten good at keeping that next-man-up mentality." On Monday, it was his turn to get the bad news: Hell miss the rest of the Broncos playoff run after an MRI showed he had a torn ACL in his left knee that will require surgery and at least six months of rehab. "Theres no doubt hes one of our better performers on defence throughout this season, but ... weve lost some pretty good performers throughout the season and this teams been resilient," coach John Fox said. Harris was injured in the third quarter of Denvers 24-17 win over San Diego on Sunday. Fox wouldnt say if Quentin Jammer will start in the AFC title game when the Broncos (14-3) host the Patriots (13-4) this weekend. "Its a long list, a long cast," Fox said. "If I knew right now, I wouldnt say anyways." Foxs options include moving Champ Bailey, a 12-time Pro Bowler whos been relegated to slot duty after returning from a nagging foot injury last month, back outside or inserting rookie Kayvon Webster into the starting lineup opposite Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. Webster is playing with a cast on his right thumb, which he broke in two places a month ago. Another option is dusting off Tony Carter, who was one of the goats in Denvers 34-31 overtime loss at New England on Nov. 24 when a punt hit his leg, the Patriots recovered and Stephen Gostkowski kicked the game-winning 31-yard field goal. After Harris got hurt, Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers staged a comeback from a 17-point deficit largely by targeting Harris rusty replacement, Jammer. It fell short, however, when Peyton Manning was able to keep Rivers on the sideline over the final 3 minutes, 51 seconds by converting a trio of third downs. Jammer surrendered a 49-yard completion to Keenan& Allen on fourth-and-5 from the Chargers 25 with seven minutes left that helped turn a comfortable cruise into a nail-biter. Nike Seahawks #72 Michael Bennett White Womens Stitched NFL Elite Jersey. "When Chris went down, things started to unravel a little bit on the back end," safety Mike Adams said. "Jam, Im not worried about him. He gave up a big play, but he could bounce back. Hes been in the league a long time. Weve all had bad games before." Adams said the Broncos wouldnt have to adjust their defence to provide help to whomever replaces Harris, either, insisting: "Im confident if Tony Carter goes out there, if Kayvon Webster goes out there, if Jam goes out there." Harris had played more snaps than anybody on defence and had 65 tackles, three interceptions and 15 pass breakups, all career highs. "Its another disappointment for us," linebacker Paris Lenon said. "Somebody else that weve been battling with that has been a huge part of this team and this defence that is down. Its an opportunity for somebody else to step up and play big." The Broncos have withstood an injury epidemic to reach their first conference championship in eight seasons, but Harris injury could prove the hardest to overcome. Harris is the fifth defensive starter the Broncos have lost since November, joining Von Miller, Kevin Vickerson, Rahim Moore and Derek Wolfe. "Its terrible news," Terrance Knighton said. "You hate to see a guy having a great year, going into a contract year (get hurt). I wish him the best. I wish him a speedy recovery, but we just have to focus on the task at hand right now and thats New England. Whoever will fill his shoes, whoever we put in there, has to step up." Harris was hurt on the opposite side of the field when Rivers completed a 19-yard pass to Allen along the San Diego sideline with 8:17 remaining in the third quarter. Allen would catch two TD passes after that and it took Mannings superb 4-minute drill to staunch Rivers rally. "Philip got hot there in the second half. I did not want to give him the ball back there at the end," Manning said.
