ST. LOUIS – The Cardinals will have to wait for their first four-game sweep of the Mets.

Daniel Murphy and David Wright combined for five hits and three RBIs against Adam Wainwright, and the New York Mets snapped a six-game losing streak with a 5-2 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals on Thursday.

Jonathan Niese (3-4) allowed two runs on six hits in 7 1/3 innings, his longest outing.

Wainwright (5-3) was coming off a two-hit shutout in which he no-hit the Rockies for 7 1/3 innings.

Murphy went 4-for-4, doubled twice and walked, and was 9-for-15 in the series. Wright doubled, singled and drove in two runs.

Pete Kozma and Carlos Beltran had an RBI apiece for the Cardinals, who lost for just the third time in 15 games.

Wainwright faltered after allowing one hit with four strikeouts the first time through the order. He allowed three earned runs in six innings, and is 1-4 with a 7.29 ERA against the Mets for his career.

Bobby Parnell finished for his fourth save in six chances.

White Sox lead 5-4 at press time: With three runs in the top of the eighth, the Chicago White Sox led the Angels 5-4 in Los Angeles at SVM press time.
