Cardinals snap five game losing streak

CAPE GIRARDEAU COUNTY, MO (KFVS) -

After losing five games in a row, the St. Louis Cardinals bounced back with a 5-4 win over the New York Mets Monday afternoon.

The Cardinals struck first in the top of the fourth inning when Allen Craig who had two hits and three RBI's on the day singled right to bring Matt Holiday home and make the score 1-0.

Next up it was the Mets turn at bat and Lucas Duda waisted no time keeping his team in the game as he hit a home run to tie the score 1-1.

The score remained tied until the top of the seventh inning.

With the Cardinals at bat, Allen Craig was walked and then David Freese singled to center which pushed Craig to third.

Up next was Daniel Descaldo who would put the Cardinals up 2-1 with a hit and after a throwing error that brought Craig home and advanced Freese to second base.

Next Adron Chambers joined his teammates on base after a single.

With the bases loaded Rafael Furcal gave his team a 3-1 lead after he grounded it to third and brought Freese home.

The Cardinals lead did not last long as the Mets responded in the seventh inning with a two run home run from Scott Hairston which tied the game at 3-3.

Allen Craig came back in the eighth inning with a home run of his own and gave his team a 5-3 lead.

This was the last time the Cardinals scored but was all they needed as they held the Mets to only two hits and one run for the rest of the game.

The final score was 5-4 but the Cardinals lost the series 3-1.

St. Louis opens up in Houston Tuesday.
