Chris Volstad surrendered only five hits in a complete-game shutout of the St. Louis Cardinals Monday afternoon. The game, which was a make-up of a rainout on August 8, clocked in at 1 hour and 52 minutes, beating the old Marlins’ record for fastest game by two minutes. Volstad, who secured his second career shutout, stopped the Marlins’ six-game losing streak – all at home. Brad Davis’ grand slam not only was his first, but also the first by a Marlins’ catcher. Yes, those Redbirds helped the Marlins set not one, but two franchise records this balmy afternoon! Moreover, the Cardinals continued their maddening descent in oblivion since their brief reign in first in mid-August, by dropping yet another game to a losing opponent.
