Beltran Helps Cards Crush Mets

Carlos Beltran went 3-for-5 with a home run and four RBI as the Cardinals crushed the Mets 10-4 at Busch Stadium. Jon Jay also homered for St. Louis, which built a 9-0 lead in the fifth inning. Filling in for Jake Westbrook, John Gast pitched five shutout innings before giving up a four-spot in the sixth to win his big league debut.

The Cardinals and Mets play the third of their four-game series at Busch Stadium tonight. Shelby Miller puts his 5-and-2 mark on the line for St. Louis, while New York counters with 0-and-3 Shaun Marcum. Miller is coming off a complete-game, one-hitter in which he struck out 13 and walked none in a 3-0 victory over the Rockies last Friday.
