Adam Wainwright pitched four innings of four-hit ball in his spring training debut, and the St. Louis Cardinals scored in the bottom of the ninth to beat an Atlanta Braves' split squad 1-0 Saturday.
Wainwright walked one and struck out three. His first start was delayed after he sustained a mild abdominal strain early in camp.
Cardinals right fielder Jason Heyward grounded into a double play and singled to right against his former team.
Carlos Martinez, bidding for a spot in the Cardinals' rotation, followed Wainwright with three solid innings.
Atlanta's Chien-Ming Wang allowed three hits in 4 2-3 innings. Wang, a 19-game winner with the New York Yankees, is trying to make the Braves after not pitching in the majors since 2013.
