Game 1: Arizona 6, Cardinals 2

Opening day got off to a promising start for the Cardinals Monday night in Arizona. The Redbirds drew first blood with a run on a pair of doubles in the opening inning and sharp work by starting pitcher Adam Wainwright. But Wainwright was hit by a line drive on his pitching shoulder in the fourth inning -- he claimed the ball hit his glove when manager Mike Matheny came out to check on him, but replays indicated otherwise -- and he struggled terribly after the incident.
