Cards Fall To Mets

The Cardinals walked in two during the fourth inning and surrendered a solo shot in the sixth to give the Mets a 3-1 win at Citi Field. Michael Wacha struck out 10, but only made it through four innings and gave up two runs to drop to 2-and-2. Matt Carpenter had four hits and Yadier Molina drove the teams lone run. St. Louis drops to 12-and-10 with the loss.

The Cardinals and Mets close out their four-game series at Citi Field this afternoon. Lance Lynn puts his 4-and-0 mark on the line against New York's Bartolo Colon, who is 1-and-3. First pitch is at 12:10 p.m. The Cards return home to host the Pirates starting tomorrow.

If you want to get someone's attention, whisper. That old investment brokerage ad is the opposite of what is going on regarding shootings in Ferguson and Tower Grove. When people threaten violence or blankly label one as a racist, it's very hard to listen. The same holds true for those who sum up the plight of impoverished black communities as "that's how those people are."
