Pagan Powers Mets Past Cardinals In The 10th
Flushing, NY (Sports Network) - The New York Mets never led against the St. Louis Cardinals Wednesday night until Angel Pagan won it in the bottom of the
10th inning with a solo home run to right field in a 6-5 victory at Citi
It was Pagan's fourth home run of the season for the Mets, who have won two straight and will look for a three-game sweep of the Cardinals on Thursday. Carlos Beltran, the subject of trade rumors with the deadline quickly approaching, belted a two-run homer in a winning effort.
Josh Thole finished with two hits, two RBI and a run scored, while veteran closer Jason Isringhausen was able to beat his former team with two scoreless innings of relief. He also tallied three strikeouts and was one of four relievers to take the hill in place of starter R.A. Dickey. Dickey did not figure into the decision and was reached for four runs and eight hits over 6 1/3 innings of work.
