The St. Louis Cardinals will look to finish at .500 as they close out the 2014 Grapefruit League season today against the Miami Marlins. The team enters the game with a record of 11-12-2 this spring. Kolten Wong leads the team with a .391 average (18-46) while Matt Adams is tops in HRs (4) and RBIs (11).

Mike Matheny's finale line up is also something to note. It look like the line up many would call the Cardinals' starting nine. The only exception being Yadier Molina' bat instead of back up catcher Tony Cruz.

Michael Wacha, who will start the home opener on April 7th, will make his fifth start of Spring Training.

Cardinals lineup:
Matt Carpenter, 3B
Jhonny Peralta, SS
Matt Holliday, LF
Allen Craig, RF
Matt Adams, 1B
Tony Cruz, C
Kolten Wong, 2B
Peter Bourjos, CF
Michael Wacha, P

35 players remain in camp (28 roster, 7 non-roster invites).
