Mets Ride Colon To Win Over Cardinals

Bartolo Colon pitched seven innings of one-run ball to outduel Lance Lynn as the Mets topped the Cardinals 4-1 at Citi Field. Lynn fanned nine in six and a third innings, but gave up three runs to fall to 4-and-1. Tony Cruz had an RBI double for St. Louis, which has lost four of five overall. The Cards start a three-game series at Busch Stadium tonight with the Pirates.
