St. Louis had 4 runs cross the plate in the 4th inning when they had 3 base hits. The key at-bat was by Willie McGee who quieted the home crowd when he slapped a base-hit bringing home two baserunners. St. Louis out-hit New York for the game, 11 hits to 6.
The win was credited to Ricky Horton(3-0) who went 8 innings allowing 3 runs. Helping the Cardinals split today's double header Rick Aguilera(1-6) was given the loss. He was unable to control the St. Louis offense and allowed 9 hits and 3 walks in 6 and 1/3 innings.
