New York Mets
Adam Wainwright, now 10-3, retired his first 11 batters before David Wright’s single, and allowed four hits with six strikeouts and two walks.
The four runs the Mets scored on Shelby Miller were the most he’s allowed in 19 big league appearances.
The 21-year-old Wacha yielded five hits over six solid innings before Randy Choate and Keith Butler finished up.
The Mets avoided a four-game sweep by getting to the Cardinals ace, who was coming off a two-hit shutout in which he no-hit the Rockies for 7 1-3 innings.
Miller’s magnificent start might not be as evident nationally.
Scott Rice’s wild pitch to pinch hitter Ty Wigginton allowed Daniel Descalso to score the go-ahead run.
