On Saturday, the St. Louis Cardinals took on the New York Mets in a home-and-away series. Memphis and Springfield traveled to Port St. Lucie while the Mets’ two Class-A clubs bussed to Jupiter.
As the result of the 2-1-1 day, the Cardinals evened their spring record against external minor league competition at 4-4-1.
Pitcher of the Day for Saturday: Lefty John Gast, in St. Louis camp this time last spring, threw three shutout innings for Memphis in an eventual tie game.
As he has been doing the last few seasons, Cardinals farm director John Vuch is sharing game stats with this site and several others with interest in Cardinals prospects. As always, the raw numbers are his, but the comments mine.
Don’t read much into which rosters on which players are appearing as early spring assignments are especially fluid.
Sunday is a camp day for the Cardinals as the Marlins and Mets face off against each other. Though camp days average only every third day, the schedule has St. Louis with three camp days in their next five.
