The New York Mets win 6-3 over St. Louis as David Wright returns

The New York Mets defeated the St. Louis Cardinals by the score of 6-3 on Monday afternoon. It was the return of David Wright. Wright had been battling an injury and this is the first time he appeared in a game this spring. Johan Santana made the start for the Mets. Santana seemed to be battling some strength issues in his arm. His velocity was the lowest it has been all spring but he still managed to get outs. 
Santana pitched five innings giving up four hits and two runs with three walks and five strikeouts. It was a mixed bag as he was wild and started off bad but he was good at the end. Ramon Ramirez got the win pitching one perfect inning, Miguel Batista pitched two innings giving up two hits and no runs and he did strike out one batter and Manny Acosta pitched one inning giving up one hit and one run with a walk.

Ruben Tejada had a hit and two RBI, Adam Loewen had a hit and Daniel Murphy had two hits. Wright had a hit, Ronny Cedeno drew a walk and Justin Turner had two hits and an RBI. Vinny Rottino had two hits and an RBI, Josh Thole had a hit, RBI and a walk and Cory Vaughn drew a walk. Turner hit a double, the Mets were 4-8 with runners in scoring position and they left five men on base. Murphy was caught stealing.

The Mets are now 6-14 in the grapefruit league and will take on the Atlanta Braves at home on Tuesday afternoon.
