The day that Cardinal fans have all been waiting for, is finally here. The first Spring Training game of the 2016 season. Today’s game isn’t an official “Grapefruit League” game, but, its a game.
The Cardinals will be playing the Florida Atlantic Owls. The Owls have played 7 games so far this year and happen to have won all of them. The Owls are not a Pee-Wee team, thats for sure, but they also aren’t an MLB team.
Former Owl, Austin Gomber, will be starting for the Cardinals today. Gomber, 22, won 15 games last year with the Cardinals Class A affiliate, while posting up a 2.67 ERA.
Below is the Cardinals Lineup for the game today.
- Tilson CF
- G. Garcia SS
- Wilson 3B
- Rodriguez 1B
- Washington RF
- A. Garcia LF
- Anna 2B
- Ohlman C
- Kelly DH
Pitcher – LHP Austin Gomber
As of now, no Lineup has been posted for the Owls, however LHP, Sean Labsan, will be their starter.
Today’s game will start at 12:05 CT. It will not be televised, but MLB.com will have game audio, if you have a subscription.
