JUPITER, Fla. (AP) -- Matt Dominguez hit a two-run homer and starter Anibal Sanchez allowed two hits in two innings as the Florida Marlins beat the St. Louis Cardinals 6-3 Monday in the spring-training opener for both teams.
Florida's Gaby Sanchez was 2 for 2 with a two-run double. He was batting in the cleanup spot for Mike Stanton, who says he likely will miss about two weeks because of a strained right quadriceps.
Stanton was hurt Sunday in an exhibition loss to the Miami Hurricanes.
Lance Berkman was 2 for 2 with a home run for St. Louis. Albert Pujols went 0 for 2 for the Cardinals, who announced during the game that right-hander Adam Wainwright had elbow ligament-replacement surgery earlier in the day in St. Louis.
Cardinals starter Raul Valdes allowed four runs and five hits in two innings.
