St. Louis Cardinals Lose to the Florida Marlins
JUPITER, Fla. (AP) -- Javier Vazquez gave up two runs in four innings, and the Florida Marlins ralled for a 5-4 win over a split-squad of St. Louis Cardinals. Vazquez, who's trying to rebound with the Marlins after a disappointing year with the New York Yankees, missed his last start earlier this week because of mild elbow tightness.
The right-hander's only mistake was a slow curveball that Nick Stavinoha hit for a two-run double with two outs in the second inning. Second baseman Omar Infante had three hits with an RBI for the Marlins, who scored four runs in the eighth inning.
Kyle Lohse, the Cardinals' No. 4 starter, allowed one run on five innings. He has a 1.50 ERA in 18 innings (four starts) this spring.
