Shane Robinson delivered a pinch-hit single which led to the game-winning run in a 5-4 walkoff victory over the Marlins on Saturday.

After Jon Jay drew a two-out walk against A.J. Ramos, Robinson came up to bat for Cardinals' closer Edward Mujica. He pushed it through the right side of the infield for a single, but the relay throw from Giancarlo Stanton went under Logan Morrison's glove at first base, which allowed Jay to scamper home with the winning run.

Shane Robinson had a grand slam, a double and a walk Friday in the Cardinals' 16-10 defeat of the Nationals.

At 16-for-30 this spring, Robinson is putting distance between himself, Adron Chambers and Justin Christian in the competition for a bench spot. The Cardinals could always eschew all of them and go with Oscar Taveras instead, but that remains highly unlikely to happen.
