Washington Nationals v Philadelphia Phillies
More from 106.7 the Fan

JUPITER, Fla. — Jaime Garcia pitched eight sharp innings Wednesday and the St. Louis Cardinals topped a split squad of Washington Nationals 10-1 Wednesday.

Garcia allowed one run and six hits, walking none and striking out eight. The Nationals’ lineup didn’t include anyone on its projected 25-man roster — the Washington starters had combined for only 20 at-bats this spring training going into the afternoon.

Midway through the game, most of the Cardinals’ regulars already had three at-bats, prompting manager Mike Matheny to call over to the minor league side of the complex for extra players as substitutes.
