at Jupiter, Fla.
Sunday, March 18 Cardinals at the plate: Pitcher Kip Wells and shortstop David Eckstein each had an RBI in the second inning. The runs were scored by Adam Kennedy and Yadier Molina, who reached base on a double and single, respectively. Scott Rolen added a two-out, two-run double down the right-field line in the sixth. Rick Ankiel had a pinch-hit sacrifice fly to score Scott Spiezio for the go-ahead run in the eighth. Mets at the plate: David Wright walked, advanced to second and third on a wild pitch and passed ball, and scored on Jose Valentin's groundout in the second frame. Moises Alou drove in two runs with a single in the sixth. Jose Reyes hit a solo home run -- his fourth long ball of the spring -- to tie the game at 4 with two outs in the seventh.
The Mets host the Orioles at 7:10 p.m. on Tuesday in a game that will pit right-hander Mike Pelfrey against Baltimore righty Jaret Wright. During Monday's off-day, Mets pitchers John Maine, Marcos Carvajal and Billy Wagner will pitch in a simulated game at Tradition Field.
