Mets 6, Cardinals 6 (top of the 8th)

If St. Louis comes from behind to win the series, Albert Pujols’ 7th inning, two-out single off Where’s Mota will loom large. Prince Albert fouled off about a half dozen pitches before drilling a liner down the third base line. Subsequently, Jim Edmonds walked and Scott Scroatee narrowly missed hitting a 3 run HR when Shawn Green knocked the deep fly to right back into play. Mr. Sandfuck was credited with a two run triple. The Mets have done well to keep Pujols in the yard, but Edmonds and Scroatee are pulling their share of the weight.
