Mets Walk Past Cards 4-1

ST. LOUIS(AP) – Taijuan Walker allowed one hit in seven innings, the Mets scored three runs on bases-loaded walks and beat the St. Louis Cardinals 4-1 on Thursday.

Walker struck out eight and walked none as the Mets salvaged a split after dropping the first two of a four-game series in St. Louis.

Walker set the tone by striking out the side in the first inning.

He retired the final 18 batters he faced.

The Mets had at least one baserunner in every inning, aided by 11 total walks from Cardinals pitchers.

New York stranded 17 runners, tying a team record in a nine-inning game, but still won.
