Wong Homers As Cards Fall To Mets

Kolten Wong hit a two-run homer and finished 2-for-5 as the Cardinals lost 9-8 to the Mets yesterday in Jupiter. Adam Wainwright went three-and-a-third innings, allowing a run on two hits. The teams rematch in Port St. Lucie today.

Cardinals outfield prospect Oscar Taveras is unlikely to make the 25-man roster coming out of spring training. Taveras had ankle surgery last season and is dealing with a tight hamstring in the same leg. Manager Mike Matheny says it will be tough to bring him north if he isn't healthy.
