St. Louis Cardinals, Boston Red Sox Tangle As Jaime Garcia Makes Spring Training Debut

The St. Louis Cardinals will meet the Boston Red Sox Thursday for their fourth Spring Training contest of the 2012 season—still looking for their first win at 0-2-1. Jaime Garcia will make his Grapefruit League debut, going—if the Cardinals' moves so far are any indication—two innings and out. The game, a 12:05 start, will be broadcast on KMOX.

In the three games so far, first baseman Matt Adams, set to make his AAA debut this year in Memphis, has been the player to watch. Subbing for an aching and otherwise veteran-with-a-guaranteed-contract-y Lance Berkman, Adams has gone 4-9 with one home run, a grand slam.

In the nascent competition to be Yadier Molina's backup catcher, Bryan Anderson is the only contestant to have made a dent: He's 2-3 with a double. Tony Cruz has been absent, while Koyie Hill is 0-4 with an error. (Steven Hill is 1-1 with an RBI, having proved he still exists with a pinch-hit single.)
