Meet the Mets

The Mets defeated the Cardinals 6-5 in 10 innings on Tuesday night. Zack Wheeler got the start but only went 4 innings while giving up four runs. The Mets’ bullpen threw six innings in relief, allowing only one run. The Mets’ offense was fueled by the home run with a Yoenis Cespedes three-run shot in the fifth and Jay Bruce’s go-ahead shot in the tenth.
