After a tough loss on Friday night and a trouncing of epic proportions on Saturday, the New York Mets look to salvage a game on Sunday.
Through six meetings during the 2015 MLB season, the St. Louis Cardinals (58-33) have beaten the New York Mets (47-44) four times.
Two of these have come the past two days.
Friday night was a disappointing 3-2 loss for the Mets, while Saturday represented a 12-2 trouncing.
Today, on Sunday, the Mets look to salvage one game as they send Jon Niese (5-8, 3.61) to the hill to take on 24-year old Tim Cooney (0-0, 4.34).

Cards outfielder Jason Heyward has been dynamite in the series. His personal best five hits on Saturday proved to be too much to overcome.

Jason Heyward tied his career high (9/26/13 vs. Philadelphia) with five hits tonight. Single game high for the Cardinals in 2015.
