On The MoundFreddy Garcia made the start for the Mets trying to rebound from a poor outing the first time around. It did not go well. Two innings, three hits and two home runs later, the Cardinals had the lead 4-0. Garcia did strike out three batters and walked one, but the two homers really looked bad. Chris Duncan's three-run shot was crushed.
Following Garcia, Jon Switzer took the mound for one inning. He allowed two earned runs on two hits, paired with a walk and a strikeout.
Dillon Gee fared the worst of the pitchers, but was hurt by a pair of errors. Gee allowed seven runs (two earned) in one inning on five hits.
Rocky Cherry and Victor De Los Santos each pitched one inning of no-hit baseball, with Cherry tallying one strike out.
Carlos Muniz and Kyle Snyder each allowed one run in their inning of work, sandwiched around a hitless inning from Tom Martin.
At The PlateRobinson Cancel and Marlon Anderson were the only Mets with multiple hits. Cancel had a single, double and one RBI. Anderson doubled twice and picked up a RBI.
Angel Pagan continued his hot spring, going 1-1 with a walk and driving in two runs with his single in the seventh inning.
In The FieldJose Coronado and Gee each committed one error. Luis Castillo, Coronado and Marlon Anderson also completed one double play.
