|Marlins Beat Cards
|JUPITER, Fla. (AP) -- Josh Johnson got another good look at St. Louis, pitching 2 1/3 scoreless innings Saturday as the Miami Marlins beat the Cardinals 3-1.
Still working his way back from shoulder issues that limited him to just nine starts last year, Johnson allowed one hit, struck out three and threw 52 pitches. He also faced the Cardinals in his first spring start on Monday, giving up two hits in 1 2-3 scoreless innings.
Johnson is in line to start the season opener against the Cardinals at new Marlins Park in Miami on April 4.
Omar Infante homered for the Marlins off Kyle Lohse, who allowed a run on two hits in three innings.
