Lynn solid for Cardinals, Marlins win 5-4

JUPITER, Fla. (AP) - Cardinals starter Lance Lynn allowed one hit in two shutout innings Saturday as a split squad of Miami Marlins beat St. Louis 5-4.

Lynn is coming off his first season of pitching at least 200 innings. He says he hasn't experienced any ill effects following that workload.

The Marlins won on Avery Romero's game-ending single in the ninth.

St. Louis hit Nathan Eovaldi hard but only managed one run off the Marlins starter.

Randal Grichuk, acquired in the trade that sent David Freese to the Angels, appeared to be fooled by Eovaldi's offspeed pitch yet still generated enough power with a one-handed swing to send a line drive over the head of center fielder Marcell Ozuna for an RBI triple.

Miami scored four times in the fourth, with Jarrod Saltalamacchia, Greg Dobbs, Jeff Mathis and Ozuna all getting RBIs.

Scott Moore's solo homer in the Cardinals eighth made it 4-all.
