Cardinals ride improved defense to winning spring

JUPITER, Fla. (AP) Given St. Louis' emphasis on improving its defense this spring, it's only appropriate that the Cardinals closed Grapefruit League play with a 6-4-3 double play.

It was St. Louis' 44th double play, best in the majors. The Cardinals are hoping it's also a sign of things to come.

"We'll be a better defensive team, I don't think there's any question about that," manager Mike Matheny said.
