ST. LOUIS, Sept. 21 (UPI) -- Ryan Theriot's pinch-hit two-run double and Adron Chambers' three-run triple Tuesday led the St. Louis Cardinals to an 11-6 win over the New York Mets.
The Cardinals won for the sixth time in their last seven games and pulled to within 2 1/2 games of Atlanta in the NL wild-card race.
Theriot's double and Chambers' bases-clearing triple came during a six-run seventh after the Mets had scored a run in the top of the sixth to tie the score 5-5. Albert Pujols and Lance Bergman both drove in a pair of runs for the Cards.
Mike Pelfrey gave up five runs on 10 hits in six innings. Josh Stinson (0-2) took the loss after allowing three runs on two hits in 2/3 of an inning.
