Game 2 of the the Mets and Cardinals series featured Dillon Gee squaring off with Adam Wainwright. Mets fans are familiar with Wainwright, he is the man that struck out Carlos Beltran looking on an un-hittable curve ball to end the 2006 NLCS.
Wainwright was nearly untouchable, Gee was pretty impressive himself.
The Cardinals got on the board first in the top of the 4th with a 2 RBI single to center from Jon Jay.
The Mets offense was anemic yet again tonight, wasting yet another quality performance from a starting pitcher, which seems to be their M.O. over the years.
Gee would finish with 2 ER allowed in 6 IP. He gave up 6 hits and had 4 strike outs to go along with 2 walks.
Wainwright would leave after 7 scoreless with a hyperextended knee. He only threw 79 pitches, surrendering 4 hits, with 3 strikeouts and 0 walks.
St. Louis would get on the board again in the top of the 9th on a Matt Holliday RBI single to extend the lead to 3-0.
The Mets would try, and fail, to come back in the bottom of the 9th. Despite getting a couple runners on base via walks the Mets bats remained silent just as they had all night.
Mets fall to 10-10. Game 3 of this series is Wednesday night at 7:10 PM. Jon Niese vs. Michael Wacha.
