JUPITER, Fla. - Outfielder Adron Chambers has already won the Cardinals Survivor contest by being the final man to appear in the most consecutive games to start the spring. Now he's just messing with us.

Chambers will start in left field and bat eighth Saturday when the Cardinals play the Miami Marlins at Roger Dean Stadium Saturday afternoon. The Cardinals have played 13 games entering today. Chambers is the only one to play in all of them.

The speedy outfielder is trying to win a spot on the Cardinals bench and has not only made every road trip this spring, he's gotten into every game. And the streak will continue for another day.

Adam Wainwright makes his third spring start for the Cardinals on the mound. He will be opposed by St. Louis native Justin Turner of the Marlins.

The complete Cardinals lineup:

Jon Jay, CF
Oscar Taveras, RF
David Freese, DH
Matt Adams, 1B
Ty Wigginton, 3B
Daniel Descalso, 2B
Pete Kozma, SS
Adron Chambers, LF
Tony Cruz, C
Adam Wainwright, P
