Cards Tag Braves' Kawakami

JUPITER, Fla. (AP) - The Atlanta Braves' big-ticket Japanese import scuffled for the first time, while the Cardinals' Adam Wainwright enjoyed his best outing by far.

Kenshin Kawakami, signed to a three-year, $23 million deal in January, was disappointed after giving up seven hits and both runs in 4 2-3 innings of a 2-1 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals on Saturday. He entered as the only NL pitcher in the Grapefruit League with two wins and a 0.00 ERA, although he minimized the damage when the Cardinals had four hits in the second but left the bases loaded.

Wainwright allowed a run and six hits in five innings with four strikeouts and no walks.
