Cardinals ready to head north

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Opening Day is just a week away, and the St. Louis Cardinals are about ready to head north.

The Cardinals play their final spring training games in Florida this week, concluding with a Thursday game at Jupiter against the Marlins.

On Friday and Saturday, they'll help the Twins break in their new ballpark with a pair of games at Target Field in Minnesota.

The Cardinals have a day off Sunday before the season opener next Monday at Cincinnati.

The home opener is April 12 against Houston.
