(KSDK Sports) -- Cardinals starter Lance Lynn will make his fourth spring start this afternoon in Jupiter, as the Cards take on cross camp rivals, the Miami Marlins and starter Ricky Nolasco.

First pitch is scheduled for 12:05 CST. at Roger Dean Stadium.

 

Lynn is expected to be St. Louis' fourth starter in 2013.  In his last outing, Lynn gave up one run -- a Kevin Youkilis' fourth-inning homer -- on two hits and a walk while striking out one over four innings, his best results so far this spring. Lynn gave up five runs (four earned) on nine hits in 4 1/3 innings over his first two Grapefruit League starts.

On Saturday, Jaime Garcia worked the first five innings for St. Louis and was charged with three runs on six hits.

Shawn Hill threw four scoreless innings and combined with three relievers on a four-hitter, as the Detroit Tigers posted a 3-0 win over St. Louis.

Hill allowed just one hit, walked one and struck out three. Bruce Rondon worked the fifth before Jose Alvarez and Luke Putkonen each threw a pair of scoreless innings.

Matt Tuiasosopo finished with two hits, including a leadoff homer in the fifth inning. Nick Castellanos doubled in a run for Detroit and Ramon Santiago drove in another with a sacrifice fly.
