Holiday didn’t play in the Cardinals’ spring training opener on Friday. He singled and walked in two plate appearances as the designated hitter Saturday.

Holliday’s first double came off starter Daisuke Matsuzaka, whose competing for the fifth spot in the Mets’ rotation.

A 30-pitch first inning that included two walks kept Cardinals starter Michael Wacha from getting out of the second. He reached his pitch cap after retiring the first two batters of the second without allowing a run.
