- The Cardinals rallied from a 4-3 deficit in the ninth inning on RBI doubles from Yadier Molina and Kolten Wong to defeat the Mets 5-4 Wednesday night in New York.
- It was only the second time this season the Cardinals won a game they trailed going to the ninth inning. They had been 1-41 before Wednesday night. The rally came against Mets’ closer Jeurys Familia, who had converted 52 consecutive save opportunities dating back to last year, the third longest streak in MLB history.
- The Cardinals failed to hit a home run, ending their streak at 17 games, two shy of the franchise record.
- The Cardinals left New York for Miami after the game, where they will open a four-game series tonight. Michael Wacha will pitch the opener against Jose Fernandez, who did not pitch in the three games the Marlins played in St. Louis earlier this month.
