The Mets defeated the Cardinals 2-0 at Citi Field on Monday night in the opener of a four-game set.
The game remained scoreless until the bottom of the third, when David Wright smacked a broken-bat RBI single to left field to put the Mets up 1-0.
Mejia left the game with runners on first and second and two outs in the seventh, and Scott Rice came in to escape the jam.
- Jenrry Mejia got the start for the Mets and tossed 6.2 innings of shutout ball.
- David Wright went 1 for 4 with an RBI.
- Travis d’Arnaud went 2 for 4 with a double and an RBI.
- Daniel Murphy went 1 for 3 with a walk and a run scored.
- Curtis Granderson went 0 for 3 with three strikeouts.
- Kyle Farnsworth, recently installed as the closer, pitched a scoreless ninth for the save.
Jenrry Mejia continues to impress. He’s had three stellar starts this year sandwiched around one so-so one – which came in Atlanta and featured an inning that Curtis Granderson helped to sabotage with a misplay in right field.
