JUPITER, Fla. (AP) - Lance Lynn rebounded from a poor outing to strike out his final eight batters and 10 overall in four innings Thursday during the St. Louis Cardinals' 11-0 win over the Atlanta Braves.
Lynn ended his stint by fanning Justin Upton, Evan Gattis and Chris Johnson.
Lynn had allowed five runs in 1 1-3 innings of relief against Miami in his previous appearance. On Thursday he allowed only one hit and walked none. He got a strikeout on every type of pitch other than his curveball.
Atlanta starter Freddy Garcia gave up four runs - three earned - and six hits in four innings.
Matt Holliday and Yadier Molina hit RBI doubles in the first, and Jhonny Peralta's two-out double drove in Holliday in the third. Xavier Scruggs hit a three-run double in a seven-run sixth.
