Scherzer tunes up for Opening Day

Today might feel like a playoff game with Max Scherzer and Adam Wainwright pitching for their respective teams today as we head into the final week of baseball in Florida. The Cardinals travel to Viera for this matchup of Aces.

There is also one change with Danny Espinosa. He said that the Viera batter’s eye is an issue for him so he will only play in the road games. Trea Turner will start in his place today.

Here’s today’s batting order:

  1. Trea Turner SS
  2. Daniel Murphy 2B
  3. Bryce Harper RF
  4. Ryan Zimmerman 1B
  5. Jayson Werth LF
  6. Anthony Rendon 3B
  7. Michael A. Taylor CF
  8. Wilson Ramos C
  9. Max Scherzer P

Yes, there is no DH today as Scherzer bats for himself, and don’t be surprised if Max is bunting even with bases empty.

This game will be carried on the radio with the MLB App. Start time is 1:05pm in Viera.
