NEW YORK (AP) - Chris Young homered to start New York's comeback as the Mets beat the St. Louis Cardinals 4-1 yesterday to send Lance Lynn to his first career loss in April. Daisuke Matsuzaka finished the four-hitter with a perfect ninth for his first save since 2000 with the Seibu Lions of Japan's Pacific League. New York took three of four from the defending NL champions and has won four of five overall.
CLEVELAND (AP) - Corey Kluber struck out a career-high 11 and pitched a four-hitter for his first complete game to lead the Indians to a 5-1 win over the Royals yesterday. Kluber didn't walk a batter and let Cleveland manager Terry Francona give some needed rest to his bullpen. The Indians have won four of five to get back to .500.
ST. LOUIS (AP) - The Chicago Blackhawks will soon have linchpin defenseman Brent Seabrook back in the lineup. The St. Louis Blues aren't certain when captain David Backes will be ready. The Blues still have home-ice advantage in the series. Three games have been decided in overtime. Game 3 was a one-goal affair before the Blackhawks added an empty-netter.
NEW YORK (AP) - St. Louis Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright threw a bullpen session and said his right knee feels good enough to allow him to make his next scheduled start Sunday against Pittsburgh. He left a 3-0 win Tuesday over the New York Mets after hyperextending his right knee while lunging for Chris Young's flare between the mound and first base.
