New York Mets vs. St. Louis Cardinals, 4-25

Like Matt Harvey Steven Matz has to learn to let it

With the victory in the rubber match of the three-game series, the Cardinals (15-9) have won 10 of their last 12. Cabrera is hitting.349/.391/.590 with four home runs, 12 RBIs and 16 runs scored, while Frazier (.264/.415/.458) is up to three homers, 14 RBIs and 14 runs scored. The St. Louis Cardinals are 14-5 this season when scoring at least three runs. For a man who's in a slump, his Tuesday night in St. Louis is off to a pretty nice start. Martinez is 0-1 with five strikeouts and an 8.31 ERA in one start against NY this year.

The right-handed Noah Syndergaard will get the start for the visiting Mets.

-Michael Wacha has lowered his ERA to 3.62 and had eight strikeouts. The bullpen has a 3.43 ERA, 1.42 WHIP and 9.0 K/9. Jose Martinez leads the Cardinals with 27 hits and 17 RBI while Yadier Molina and Tommy Pham have combined for 49 hits and 23 RBI. The Mets (15-8) fell to 2-4 on a nine-game road trip. Still, a dominant starting rotation, a bullpen that was lights out through the first two weeks of the season, and timely hitting have helped the team overcome this lack of offense. One swing puts Mets even in St. Louis.

He did not appear in Wednesday's game, a sloppy affair in which starter Steven Matz gave up seven runs (three earned) over three and one-third innings.

Wacha made just one start against the Mets last season, but it was a gem. Wong had two infield hits in tonight's game. The safest play in this game is going to be the under.

St. Louis has posted 22.1 Runs + Hits + Errors per game over its last 10 contests and 24.2 over its last five.

One of the Mets' most disappointing hitters has been Yoenis Cespedes, the slugging outfielder who was expected to provide support to the middle of the lineup while hitting second in the order.
