|Freese Back at 3B for Cardinals
|FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) -- Cardinals third baseman David Freese played the field and ran the bases in a game on Monday for the first time since undergoing two ankle surgeries last summer.
Freese also had two hits and three RBIs in St. Louis' 10-4 victory over the Minnesota Twins.
Jake Westbrook pitched 3 2/3 innings for the Cardinals, yielding one run and four hits.
Twins reliever Joe Nathan, who had reconstructive right elbow surgery nearly a year ago, worked the fifth for his third consecutive hitless inning.
