This afternoon we walked one block from our hotel to Busch Stadium to watch the St. Louis Cardinals play the Miami Marlins. Game time was 1:15 PM. The weather was fine for baseball with sunny skies, temperatures in the high eighties, and moderate humidity.

This was our first visit to Busch Stadium. The St. Louis Cardinals hosted the Miami Marlins today. For the first 2 innings, our seats were in direct sunlight and we were sizzling. For the rest of the game, we were covered by shade.

The Cardinals didn’t play their best baseball today, and they had just 6 hits in the game, but they won by a final score of 3-2. Box Score

Fortunately for the Cardinals, they could afford a little sloppiness because their opponent today has been the worst team in major league baseball up to this point in 2013.
