JUPITER, Fla. (AP) -- Brad Penny's debut in a St. Louis Cardinals uniform was rocky, yet he was pleased with his first outing of the spring.

Penny pitched two innings, allowing three runs and six hits in the Cardinals' 7-3 loss to a New York Mets' split squad Friday. Three of those hits were soft flyballs that landed just beyond the infield.

The Mets snapped a 3-all tie in the seventh and scored three in the ninth. Designated hitter Shawn Riggans drove in the go ahead run with a single and Frank Catalanotto's pinch-hit triple in the ninth scored two runs.
