Adam Wainwright making his first start since signing his new contract got rocked by the Baltimore Orioles. He gave up four runs on nine hits in just 4 2/3 innings, but the Cardinals come away with the win 7-4 as the Cardinals get above .500 for the spring with an 11-10 record.
Ryan Ludwick cranked a tie-breaking two-run homer in the fifth, his third long ball of the spring. Aaron Miles had three hits and scored twice, and Troy Glaus had two singles and two RBIs.
More good news for the Cardinals. Mark Mulder threw 30 pitches to Minor League hitters, simulating a total of 10 at-bats. Mulder struggled with control early, then settled in and got the ball down a lot more in the later in his session.
