Season series: Mets vs. Cardinals

Season series: Mets vs. Cardinals

|
With the exception of a start by Mark Mulder (who won't pitch in the playoffs because of injury), the Mets hit Cardinals starting pitching hard during their season series. For St. Louis, Albert Pujols, at .250 (5-for-20), hit well below his season average but still managed to slug two homers and collect nine RBIs against the Mets.

Neither team threw its ace in the season series, as Pedro Martinez didn't pitch for the Mets and Chris Carpenter didn't take the ball for the Cardinals.

Season Series: Mets win, 4-2.
