Darryl Strawberry moved Tuesday to Class A ball, going 1-for-4with a double and a walk as his Tampa Yankees lost 5-3 to the Dunedin Blue Jays.
Also in the lineup was New York second baseman Pat Kelly, who was 1-for-5 with a single and an RBI. Kelly is rehabilitating a wrist he injured last month.
Wearing uniform No. 52, Strawberry faced 21-year-old right-hander Keilan Smith twice as Tampa's designated hitter. He struck out swinging in the first inning, then hit an opposite-field double to left-center leading off the fourth.
Against reliever D. J. Harris, another right-hander, Strawberry went down swinging again in the fifth and was retired on a pop fly to shallow left in the eighth. Left-hander Tim Adkins walked Strawberry in the ninth.
Jeff Patzke homered in the first and Vic Davila added a two-run homer in the fourth to power Dunedin. Smith (8-4) struck out seven in six innings.
Cardinals 8, Cobras 0: Host St. Petersburg scored three runs in the bottom of the first and never looked back. Dave Madsen drove in four runs, and winner Bret Wagner gave up five hits in 7 innings.
Miracle 2, Phillies 0: Wendell Magee opened the game with a double for visiting Clearwater, but that would be the Phillies' last hit until the fifth as Benj Sampson shut down Clearwater in a game called with one out in the bottom of the fifth because of rain.
