St. Louis Cardinals (41-22)-New York Mets (23-35)
WACHA: After an exceptional Major League debut, Wacha stumbled in his second start. He was tagged for six earned runs on 10 hits and one walk and surrendered a home run in the Cardinals' 7-6 14-inning loss.
HEFNER: Hefner's rotten luck continued Tuesday in Washington, where Bobby Parnell's blown save spoiled his seven innings of one-run ball. Despite quality starts in six of his last eight outings, Hefner has won only one of them.
MILLER: After allowing two runs on three hits in the first inning on Thursday, Miller settled down to pitch five scoreless frames and retired his last seven batters, six of them on strikeouts, to pick up his seventh win.
GEE: With their jobs on the line, Hefner and Gee have transformed into better pitchers, one-upping each other on a weekly basis. To keep rolling, Gee will need to silence the Cardinals, who hung five runs on him last month.
WAINWRIGHT: Wainwright became the Majors' second nine-game winner his last time out. He has made 12 quality starts and finished at least seven innings in 10 of his 13 outings. He has been every bit the ace the Cardinals hoped he would be.
HARVEY: Harvey left his last start, the Mets' 20-inning loss to the Marlins, long before the outcome was near. He felt tightness in his lower back at the end of the seventh and left the game when warming up for the eighth.
