In the bottom of the third, the Mets cut the deficit with a two-run single by Plawecki making it 6-3. He went 1-for-1 with a walk overall.
Brandon Nimmo was 1-for-2 in the leadoff spot picking up a single and an RBI on a sacrifice fly to center field to make it 8-4 in the fourth.
Luis Guillorme hit a solo home run to make it 10-5 in the fifth, but it would prove to be too little too late, as the Cards held on to their lead from there on out.
