Mets Hold Off Cards To Avoid Sweep

Eric Young Jr. had a pair of run-scoring doubles as the Mets edged the Cardinals 3-2 at Busch Stadium. Lance Lynn gave up two runs in six frames to fall to 7-and-5. Matt Carpenter homered and Allen Craig singled in a run for St. Louis, which had won five in-a-row. The Cards start a four-game series with the Phillies tonight.
