JUPITER (CBSMiami/AP) — A game that was interrupted by rain ended up going in the Miami Marlins favor on Thursday.
St. Louis Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright gave up four runs, including a solo homer by Giancarlo Stanton, in 3 2-3 innings before a rain delay ended his outing in a 5-3 loss to the Marlins.
Wainwright gave up six hits in his second spring start and struggled with his fastball.
After rain held up play for 55 minutes, Wainwright went to the indoor batting cages for more work. Pitching coach Derek Lilliquist noticed a flaw in Wainwright’s mechanics.
“It’s the best I felt all spring,” said Wainwright, whose spring progression was slowed by an early abdominal strain. “I know it’s not against hitters, but it translates for me.”
Wainwright threw 65 pitches on the field and an estimated 25 more in the cage.
