Recap:

St. Louis pitcher Adam Wainwright tossed seven scoreless innings before leaving Tuesday's 3-0 win over the New York Mets with a hyperextended right knee.

Wainwright (4-1) was at 79 pitches when he stumbled awkwardly while trying to field a chopper on a play that ended the seventh inning. He gave up just four hits and struck out three.

The right-hander was coming off a two-hit shutout last Thursday in an 8-0 win at Washington.

Jon Jay went 2-for-4 with two RBI for the Cardinals, who improved to 5-4 on an 11-game road trip. Matt Holliday went 3-for-4 with an RBI and run scored.

Dillon Gee (1-1) allowed two runs on six hits over six innings for the Mets, who fell to 2-3 on a 10-game homestand. He had four strikeouts and two walks.

The Cardinals got on the board in the fourth. Holliday walked, Matt Adams singled and Yadier Molina singled to load the bases with no outs. Jay followed with a two-run single to center. St. Louis couldn't get anything else in the inning.

Holliday robbed Chris Young of a tying homer in the fifth. After Daniel Murphy reached base on a bunt single, Holliday reached over the left-field fence to take a homer away from Young.

Holliday added an RBI single in the ninth to make it 3-0.

After Wainwright exited, Kevin Siegrist pitched a perfect eighth and Trevor Rosenthal tossed a scoreless ninth to record his sixth save of the season.

Game Notes

Wainwright improved to 3-4 lifetime against the Mets ... Molina extended his hitting streak to 13 games ... New York third baseman David Wright had a 12- game hitting streak snapped after going 0-for-4.
