The Cardinals dropped their second grapefruit league game, falling to the Mets 8-6 in Port St. Lucie, Florida on Tuesday. Matt Adams, a Cardinals prospect, provided the biggest thrill with a grand slam go-ahead home run in the 7th inning. The 23 year old Adams is a big slugger who hit 32 home runs last season for Double A Springfield.
Jake Westbrook made the start for the Cardinals pitching two shutout innings. Cardinal regulars Carlos Beltran, Lance Berkman, and Rafael Furcal did not make the trip staying back at the Cardinals Complex in Jupiter, Florida.
