Pavano pitches four scoreless innings in Twins win

Carl Pavano pitched four more scoreless innings, running his spring streak to 13 in the Cardinals' 3-2 victory over Minnesota Saturday.

Pavano was pitching on three days' rest to line him up for the Twins' April 1 opener at Toronto. He tossed 57 pitches, 40 for strikes.

Pavano allowed three singles and two doubles, after giving up just four hits in his first three outings.

Cardinals starter Jake Westbrook allowed a run on six hits and a walk in four innings. Westbrook threw 71 pitches.

Westbrook was pleased he "minimized the damage" by allowing just the one run, which scored on a sacrifice fly in the second inning.
