Cardinals double up Mets in spring training game

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. -- As far as the factors working in Carlos Martinez's favor, the list is long and includes an elite four-pitch arsenal. This season, the club sees an opportunity for Martinez to truly elevate himself to the next level.

But in his 2018 Grapefruit League debut Saturday, Martinez walked three over 1 1/3 innings in St. Louis' 10-5 win over the Mets.

The Cardinals will host Houston Sunday in Jupiter. Miles Mikolas starts for St. Louis, and the Astros will go with Gerrit Cole. The first pitch is scheduled for 12:05. Sunday's game can be heard on KTLO-AM. Coverage begins at 11:45.
