JUPITER, Fla. (AP) ā€” The St. Louis Cardinals have named Adam Wainwright as their opening day starter, and he showed why in a victory over the Washington Nationals. Wainwright gave up just one run in six strong innings in the 5-1 exhibition victory for St. Louis. Matt Adams hit a three-run homer to provide most of the offense.
