"We looked at Carlos at the second-base position and felt we had better talen ahead of him. We looked at him in a utility role and felt the same thing.

LUCIE The last time New York Mets pitcher Masato Yoshii saw the St. Louis Cardinals, he picked up his first spring training victory. On Wednesday, the Cardinals handed the Japanese rookie his first defeat. St. Louis hit combined for three home runs off Yoshii and Mets reliever Dennis Cook, a former Marlin, to snap a seven game losing streak with a 4-1 victory at Thomas J. White Stadium. Cardinals center fielder Ron Gant hit a solo homer off Yoshii in the fourth and in-fielders Brian Hunter and David Bell each homered off Cook in the seventh inning. In six innings Yoshii, who is trying to earn a spot in the Mets starting rotation, gave up five hits and two runs while striking out two. Mets manager Bobby Valentine said the fifth spot in the starting rotation remains undecided. "(Yoshii) looks like what he was advertised to be," Valentine said. "If he gets the ball up, he's going to get hit. If he makes his pitches, he's going to keep us in a lot of ball games." Cardinals manager Tony LaRussa used Wednesday's game to take another look at right-handed pitcher Cliff Politte, who was St. Louis' minor league pitcher of the year last season. Politte pitched 4M innings, giving up three hits and one run while striking out six to improve to 4-1 in five outings. im io ooo I Texas Politte, who went a comr i; bined 15-2 last year whilef,!' playing for Class AA Arkansas and Class A Prince WuV: liam, drew praise from LaR-.,'; ussa for Wednesday's outing, but LaRussa remained mum about the 24- year-old non-roster invitee's' chances of making the squad. "It was another impres-r sive outing. When he's fresh' he's very tough," LaRussa said. "You don't usually give a guy a start this late in the spring unless he's got a shot, but that doesn't guaranteed you anything." V Short work day: It was a brief outing for Cardi-i nals reliever Rigo Beltran,;.! who faced one batter inb Wednesday's game. Beltran,.-, a left-hander, came in to face Mets left-hander Matt Franco with one out in the bottom ! of the eighth. I Beltran forced Franco to- J fly out to center field. ', "We wanted to bring him j against a left-hander and that i was the only lefthander they ( were going to use," LaRussa j said. "That's why you have spring training, so you can tike a look at guys in certain 1 1 situations." vn' Roster moves: The,--. Cardinals place catcherin-fielder Danny Sheaffer on i; unconditional release waiv-u ers . Sheaffer appeared in 14 games, going hitless in 16 ; plate appearances. NeW:, York sent non-roster invir,' tees Rick Parker and Rick, Trilcek down to the minors(.'( 010 000 001 -2 Tampa Bay n.u.l.nfl t COirO. J I CO. I, I.Mipn uor ..
