Cardinals fall to Marlins in spring training opener


JUPITER, Fla. (AP) - Jose Fernandez struck out two in two scoreless innings Friday, and the Miami Marlins beat the St. Louis Cardinals 5-4 in the spring training opener for both teams.

Fernandez, the 2013 NL Rookie of the Year, pitched around his own error and was helped by a diving catch by right fielder Giancarlo Stanton that robbed Allen Craig of a hit. Fernandez allowed a single by Yadier Molina and an infield hit by Shane Robinson.

Cardinals starter Carlos Martinez went three innings and allowed two runs, both coming when Garrett Jones homered in his first at-bat with the Marlins.

Matt Adams and Peter Bourjos had RBI singles for St. Louis, and Patrick Wisdom hit a two-run homer in the ninth.
