Cardinals fall to Mets

March 29th, 2013 in News

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. - David Wright made his first appearance in a big-league game since sustaining a rib injury during the World Baseball Classic, going 0-for-3 and playing five innings for the New York Mets in a 7-2 victory against the St. Louis Cardinals.

Wright was a late scratch from the United States' game against the Dominican Republic on March 14. He received a cortisone shot in his left side a day later.

Cardinals pitcher Jake Westbrook allowed four runs on five hits with four walks and two strikeouts in four innings. Center fielder Jon Jay went 2- for-2.
