Wainwright to start for Cardinals on opening night

JUPITER, Fla. (AP) Next up for Adam Wainwright is opening night in Chicago. The right-hander proved he is ready to go by pitching into the seventh inning in St. Louis' 3-2 loss to the Miami Marlins on Tuesday.

Wainwright allowed two runs and eight hits while throwing 93 pitches in 6 2-3 innings. The ace was slowed by an abdominal injury early in spring training, raising questions about whether he would be ready to pitch in that first game against the Cubs.

"We know what he does on the big stage and how he rises to the occasion for big opportunities - and opening day is a big opportunity," Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said.
