The Cardinals salvaged the finale of their three-game series with a 6-2 win over the Mets in New York. Albert Pujols [[ POO-holes ]] clubbed a two-run homer in the first inning and Jon Jay went 2-for-4 with an RBI for St. Louis. Skip Schumaker also drove in a run. Jake Westbrook allowed just four hits and two runs over eight innings for the win. Jon Niese suffered the loss.
