McKay sparks Cards again
PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. -- Cody McKay's two-run single in the ninth inning Saturday lifted the St. Louis Cardinals to a 5-4 victory over a split squad of New York Mets.
McKay, the son of first base coach Dave McKay, got his second game-winning hit in two days. He had a three-run triple in the first inning Friday against Josh Beckett in a win against the Marlins.
"This was better," McKay said Saturday. "No, it's about the same as yesterday for me."
Todd Zeile hit a three-run homer for the Mets.
New York built a 4-0 lead in the first against Jeff Suppan. Zeile's drive over the fence in left field highlighted the rally.
"I was throwing out of the stretch the whole first inning," Suppan said. "I hadn't really done that this spring, so it was good to be in that situation so I could work on it."
Steve Trachsel was touched for two runs in the second, the first runs he's given up in nine innings this spring.
Grant Roberts allowed a run in the fifth when he walked So Taguchi and Albert Pujols before Kevin Witt singled, cutting the Mets' lead to 4-3.
