ST. LOUIS — The Mets got an unlikely offensive boost, getting home runs for Tomas Nido and Jonathan Villar, in their 7-2 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals to earn a split of a doubleheader Wednesday.
Six different Met pitchers — Miguel Castro, Jordan Yamamoto, Aaron Loup, Trevor May, Robert Gsellman and Jeruys Familia — gave up only two runs while scattering 11 hits to combine for the win. No pitcher lasted longer than two and two-thirds innings.
In a night for the Mets bench, Kevin Pillar also knocked in two runs on two hits.
New York and St. Louis complete their four-game set Thursday afternoon.
