Wong, Martinez Pace Cardinals Past Mets

Kolten Wong homered for the second straight day as the Cardinals held off the Mets 6-4 in Grapefruit League play in Port St. Lucie. Starter Carlos Martinez struck out three while allowing just two hits in four shutout innings for the win. Scott Piscotty drove in two for St. Louis.

The Cardinals are back in Jupiter today as they host the Braves at Roger Dean Stadium. Lance Lynn is slated to take the mound for St. Louis, while Atlanta counters with veteran Freddy Garcia. The Cards are 3-7 in Grapefruit League play thus far, while the Braves are 6-9.
