Cardinals Vs. Mets Final Score: St. Louis Scoreless Through 19 Innings, Lose 5-0

The St. Louis Cardinals (27-26) are only a game above .500 after losing 5-0 to the New York Mets (30-23) on Saturday. The Cards have now lost 15 of their last 22 games, and following Saturday's shutout from SP R.A. Dickey, they have not scored since the top of the 8th inning in Wednesday's 10-8 loss to the Atlanta Braves -- a total of 19 run-less innings.

The knuckleballer Dickey dominated the battered Cardinals lineup, producing 9 strikeouts while limiting St. Louis to just 5 singles and 2 doubles. Meanwhile, the Mets lineup jumped on SP Lance Lynn early, scoring 3 runs (2 earned) in the second inning and forcing Lynn (105 pitches with 5 walks and 3 strikeouts) out of the game midway through the fifth inning.

3B David Wright (2 for 4 with with double, homer and a walk) and 2B Daniel Murphy (2 for 4 with a double) did the heavy lifting for the Mets offense to give New York their 9th win in 12 games.
