    Mets, Cards Wrap Up Wild Series Sunday



    Say this for the New York Mets and St. Louis Cardinals: Even with one game still to go, they've already packed plenty of weirdness into their only regular-season series in the Big Apple.

    The Mets and Cardinals will conclude an eventful four-game series Sunday, when New York left-hander Jason Vargas (3-3, 3.68 ERA) is scheduled to take the mound against St. Louis right-hander Dakota Hudson (5-3, 3.47).

    The Mets maintained their hopes of earning a split on Saturday when Pete Alonso's three-run homer -- which glanced off the third deck in left field at Citi Field and was measured at 458 feet -- keyed a five-run first inning before New York barely hung on for an 8-7 win.

    The Mets led 8-3 when starting pitcher Noah Syndergaard left with a strained right hamstring with none out in the seventh. The Cardinals scored three times in the seventh, left the bases loaded in the eighth and got within one run in the ninth before St. Louis pitcher Jack Flaherty, who started Thursday's game and was pinch running, was thrown out at home by second baseman Jeff McNeil after trying to score from first on a bloop single to end the game.

    "That was just a whirlwind of emotions," Alonso told reporters after the game. "I saw the ball drop, because that landed right in the honey hole between Jeff and (Michael Conforto) and it's just 'Oh Lord.' And then Jeff made an absolute dime of a throw. I was just like 'Yeah!'

    "I'm happy that we made the play and won the game. That's definitely needed and just need to do it again tomorrow."


    The frantic ninth inning was the latest wildness experienced by the Mets and Cardinals. The series opener was suspended due to rain after the Cardinals scored against Diaz twice in the ninth to tie the game 4-4. The game resumed Friday night, and St. Louis scored again off Diaz in the 10th to earn the win before scoring four runs after the eighth inning of the regularly scheduled game to record a 9-5 victory.

    "You see Flaherty chugging the bases and I thought he was going to score," said Cardinals starting pitcher Michael Wacha, who took the loss Saturday after allowing six runs (five earned) in four innings. "The guy made a heck of a throw from right field, right on the money. So, I mean, you've just got to tip your cap at some point and go get them tomorrow. But it was a crazy ending, that's for sure."

    Vargas won his second straight start Tuesday when he allowed three runs over six innings as the Mets beat the New York Yankees, 10-4. He has a 2.20 ERA in his last eight starts after producing a 6.32 ERA in his first 23 appearances (22 starts) since signing a two-year deal with New York in February 2018.

    Hudson also earned a win Tuesday, when he gave up one run over a season-high seven innings as the Cardinals beat the Miami Marlins, 7-1. The victory extended Hudson's unbeaten streak to six starts, during which he's gone 3-0 with a 2.39 ERA to lower his overall ERA from 4.63 to 3.47.

    Vargas is 1-2 with a 4.99 ERA in six career appearances (five starts) against the Cardinals. Hudson won his lone start against the Mets on Apr. 21, when he allowed three runs over five innings in St. Louis' 6-4 victory.

          DeJong Tags Mets Again, Cardinals Win 4-3 with Only 3 Hits


          by CHARLES O'BRIEN

          -- Paul DeJong again picked on a favorite foe.

          DeJong tagged the Mets for a tie breaking home run in the eighth inning Sunday, sending St. Louis Cardinals over New York 4-3.

          The young shortstop is 30 for 83 (.361) with nine homers and 10 doubles over 20 career games against the Mets. He has connected for five homers in his last five games at Citi Field.

          The Cardinals won despite getting outhit 10-3. They took three of four in the series, and DeJong homered in each victory.

          "Nothing comes to mind," DeJong said of his mastery of the Mets.

          DeJong connected off Chris Flexen (0-3) for his solo drive.

          "He hung a 3-1 slider. I was looking fastball and I just reacted," DeJong said. "I thought they were pitching around me early in the count and they challenged me late and I was ready."

          The loss was the latest in which Mets relievers couldn't shut down an opponent.

          New York's bullpen has allowed 15 earned runs over its last 20 1/3 innings.

          "The tale of the game was that they were one swing away, we were one swing away and they made one good swing," manager Mickey Callaway added. "They got the big one. We didn't."

          The Cardinals rallied against New York's bullpen in each of their wins in series.

          "You talked about resilience, we talked about different ways we beat people," Cardinals manager Mike Shildt said. "The entire series was indicative of that."

          Paul Goldschmidt hit a prodigious home run off the facade of the second deck and scored twice for St. Louis, which went 5-5 on its season-long 10-game road trip.

          Robinson Cano returned from the injured list and doubled and scored a run, and Dominic Smith had two hits in his first career start in the leadoff spot for New York, which is 5-5 over its last 10 games.

          Mets starter Jason Vargas exited in the fourth inning with a cramp in his left calf. He fouled a ball off his foot and was pulled during the at-bat. He allowed three runs over four innings, matching the number of runs he'd allowed over his previous 22 innings.

          Vargas anticipated being able to make his next start.

          Andrew Miller (3-2) pitched a scoreless seventh to earn the victory and Carlos Martinez went two innings for his second save.

          Pinch-hitter Todd Frazier reached far over the plate and, with one hand, blooped an opposite-field single to right with one out in the Mets ninth. Frazier shared a quick laugh at first base with Martinez, who then got pinch-hitter Wilson Ramos to ground into a game-ending double play.

          Goldschmidt's first-inning homer was the only hit the Cardinals could muster in the first seven innings against Vargas and Wilmer Font. Yadier Molina's ninth-inning single was the only other Cardinal to reach with a hit.

          Dakota Hudson struggled early, falling behind eight of the first 12 batters, but rebounded to keep St. Louis in the game, allowing three runs over six innings. The Cardinals have won each of his last six starts.

          J.D. Davis and Adeiny Hechavarria each had an RBI for New York.

          HOMERLESS

          The Mets' 13-game home run streak, and franchise-record 19-game homer streak at home, came to an end.

          TRAINER'S ROOM

          Cardinals: Goldschmidt returned to the starting lineup after a day of rest . Molina was in the starting lineup after getting hit on his glove hand by a foul ball Saturday evening.

          Mets: RHP Noah Syndergaard was placed on the 10-day injured list with a strained right hamstring. He underwent an MRI Sunday and Callaway said results would be announced Monday . OF Brandon Nimmo (neck) has visits scheduled with additional specialists as he continues to deal with a bulging disk.

          UP NEXT

          Cardinals: RHP Miles Mikolas (4-7, 4.83 ERA) opposes Miami's RHP Elieser Hernandez (0-1, 5.87 ERA) to open a four-game series at home. Mikolas is 3-2 with a 3.00 ERA in five starts vs. NL East opponents, but 1-5 with a 6.15 ERA in nine starts against all other divisions.

          Mets: RHP Zack Wheeler (5-4, 4.87 ERA) looks to bounce back as New York opens a three-game series at NL East-leading Atlanta. Wheeler allowed a career-worst nine runs in 4 2/3 innings against the Yankees on June 11, although only five were earned. He's opposed by RHP Mike Soroka (7-1, 1.92 ERA), who has not lost since April 18.
