Mets Vs. Cardinals Final Score: Jaime Garcia Silences Bats As New York Drops 2nd Straight, 5-1

St. Louis Cardinals starter Jaime Garcia proved too much for the New York Mets on Tuesday night, as the lefty baffled Mets hitters for most of his 7.1 innings to help lead the Cardinals past the Mets, 5-1.

The Cardinals struck early for three runs in the second inning in St. Louis, as singles from Skip Schumaker and Daniel Descalso as well as a sacrifice fly from first baseman Matt Carpenter put the Cardinals up 3-0 early. The Cardinals added runs in both the sixth and seventh innings playing small ball against the Mets, scoring on a fielders' choice and as a result of a David Freese single.

The Mets collected nine hits of their own, but were only able to bring across one run against Cardinals pitching.

Mets starter Matt Harvey was able to contain the Cardinals for the most part, giving up three earned runs in five innings, but without any run support, Harvey suffers his fourth loss of the year. The Mets' bullpen did little to pick him up, giving up two runs over their four innings pitched.
