    Lynn's 10-game winning streak ended in his last start, though he gave up only two runs on four hits in seven innings. Lynn entered the game leading the league in run support. He's finished the seventh in four straight outings.

    Coming off one of the best starts of his career, Hefner was noticeably less sharp last time out against the White Sox. He still kept the Mets within striking distance, which is all they can ask for in his debut meeting with the Cardinals.

    The lefty will make his big league debut filling in for Jake Westbrook, who is on the 15-day DL with shoulder inflammation. Gast was 3-1 with a 1.16 ERA at Triple-A and did not allow an earned run over his first 32 innings this season.

    Gee played with fire throughout his five innings against the Pirates last Thursday, ultimately escaping with a no-decision. He has faced the Cardinals twice before with a fair bit of success, though never at Busch Stadium.

    Miller is coming off a career-best outing, striking out 13 and retiring the last 27 batters he faced in a 3-0 one-hitter over Colorado on Friday. Of the 13 strikeouts, eight were caught looking. Miller gave up a leadoff broken-bat single.

    In allowing six runs Friday, Marcum became the first pitcher to last fewer than five innings in each of his first three starts with the Mets. He went exactly five innings in his lone start against the Cardinals last season.

    Wainwright is coming off one of the best starts of his career -- his third two-hit shutout in a 3-0 win over Colorado. He retired the first 13 batters and carried a no-no into the eighth before Nolan Arenado's one-out single.

    Niese is coming off the worst two-start stretch in his career, giving up a combined 16 runs, nine walks and 15 hits in 8 1/3 innings. He does hold a 1.83 ERA against the Cardinals in four career starts, all at Citi Field.

    Injuries

    Day-to-day


    Oscar Taveras
    May 12 - Taveras is day-to-day after suffering an ankle injury during a slide in Sunday's game at Triple-A Memphis. X-rays after the game came back negative as no fractures were discovered, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
    ESPN.com

    15-day DL


    Jake Westbrook
    May 13 - ST. LOUIS -- Jake Westbrook has been trying to ignore elbow pain since spring training. The St. Louis pitcher and the team finally decided it was time for a break.
    "I've pitched through a lot of stuff through my career," Westbrook said Sunday. "It just kind of got a little more inflamed than I would have liked my last start."
    The Cardinals will place the right-hander on the 15-day disabled list with elbow inflammation and plan to select the contract of left-hander John Gast in time for Tuesday night's game against the New York Mets.
    ESPN.com


    Rafael Furcal
    Mar 7 - JUPITER, Fla. -- St. Louis shortstop Rafael Furcal will undergo ligament replacement surgery in his right elbow and expects to miss the 2013 season.
    Furcal made the decision after visiting Dr. James Andrew's clinic in Pensacola, Fla., on Wednesday.
    ESPN.com

    60-day DL


    Jason Motte
    May 7 - CHICAGO -- St. Louis Cardinals closer Jason Motte had season-ending Tommy John surgery on Tuesday.
    Motte tweeted the ligament-replacement surgery on his right elbow "went well."
    ESPN


    Chris Carpenter
    May 10 - Chris Carpenter, the Cardinals never-say-die pitcher, threw a 75-pitch bullpen session on Friday afternoon, providing added proof that his career, which looked over in the spring before of nerve damage in his arm, may have another act.
    "Everything's come out pretty good," he said. "My arm's come back, I feel strong. I know there are a lot of questions on why. I'm not trying to be a hero, or do anything crazy, I just want to go out and see if I can pitch and see how it feels. I'm not going to have super-high expectations, but as long as it continues to go well, I'm going to continue to go out and take that next step. So far it's been good."
    What's next is more bullpen sessions for Carpenter, who said he would have a better idea at the end of the Cardinals' current homestand as to when he'll get in games. He said Friday's session was his fourth or fifth time in the bullpen, and he's felt no pain and no numbness.

    I see a sweep developing. I have confidence in our chancees in every game. Only one that is up in the air is Gast's starts but our minors have done good in their MLB debuts this year

    What kind of stuff does Gast have? I just picked him up for the start in my fantasy league. He has great numbers in AAA this year, but I have never seen him pitch before.

    Average fastball, 91-93. Plus curveball. Quality change up. Good control

    Lots of walks. Strange for him. If he could give 6 innings that would be great

    He keeps shaking his throwing arm. Don't think he's feeling like himself...

    I haven't noticed. He is kinda strange on the mound though. I always think he hurt his back because after almost every pitch he wipes his hand on his back

    Wow. Wiggington just did an absolutely great job there.

    Doubles, Caprneter hits ball off pitchers foot and it flys into foul territory on the first base side. Pitcher and catcher both chase after ball, pitcher doesn't cover home like he should, Wiggington recognizes no ones at home, goes through the stop sign and scores go ahead run

    He's awful but that was a great play

    Great play by Wigginton. Reminded me of Larry Walker out there when we had him with that high iq play
