April 23, 1985 Game 168: Mets (6-6) at Cardinals (8-4)

These two look like they will battle it all season for the East title.  Today the Mets send Rick Aguilera to toe the rubber and the Cardinals counter with Kurt Kepshire.  The fans would be in for a treat.

In the 4th the Mets get 1 as Foster doubles and would score on a Foster single.  The Cardinals get 2 to take the lead.  Herr singles and steals 2nd.  Clark singles and Herr scores. Van Slyke singles and Clark holds at 2nd.  Nieto singles and Clark comes around to score and its 2-1 Cardinals.

Kepshire and Aguilera match each other the rest of the way and the offenses are held in check.

The Final Score 2-1 Cardinals
