Stanton & Yelich return to Jupiter after Team USA World Baseball Classic win
Jupiter (CBS12) —
Fans chanted "USA, USA!" at Roger Dean Stadium in Jupiter, as Christian Yelich and Giancarlo Stanton came to the plate It was their first game back in a Marlins uniform after winning the World Baseball Classic with Team USA. Both of them responded by going 1 for 2 at the plate, and by Yelich scoring the only run of the game in a 1-0 Marlins spring training win over the St. Louis Cardinals.
Marlins left handed starter Justin Nicolino pitched five impressive scoreless innings, only giving up three hits and striking out three. He is making a great case for the Marlins 5th starter spot, allowing just one earned run over his past 12 innings pitched.
The Marlins and Cardinals will play again at Roger Dean Stadium on Sunday.
