The Cardinals were able to get a few RBI singles in the second inning from Kolten Wong and Jon Jay.

In the minor leagues yesterday, the highlight was Springfield left fielder Anthony Garcia going 2 for 3 at the plate. He scored, drove in three runs, walked, and struck out. He hit a 2-run blast to tie the game.

The Cardinals will play the Boston Red Sox today in a rematch of the 2013 World Series. The game will be aired nationally on ESPN with Shelby Miller prepared to start against John Lackey. In five innings this spring, Miller has allowed three runs, six hits, nine strikeouts, and no walks. This is Miller’s third start of the spring with his last two coming against the Red Sox and the Detroit Tigers.

Pitchers that are also scheduled to pitch today include Tim Cooney, Tyler Lyons, Lee Stoppelman, and closer Trevor Rosenthal.

Jason Motte threw his second live batting practice session today. The former closer is returning from Tommy John surgery.

Yesterday, the Cardinals reassigned pitcher Zach Petrick and outfielder James Ramsey to Minor League camp. This leaves the club with 34 roster players and 10 non-roster invitees in the big league camp. They added pitcher Scott McGregor to the major league camp as a non-roster invitee.
