LEADOFF QUICK HITTERS

THURSDAY, SEPT. 16,  2021

The Cardinals increased their lead for the second wild-card playoff spot with an 11-4 win over the Mets on Wednesday night, completing their first three-game series sweep in New York since 2001. They have won five games in a row and seven out of their last eight and are now seven games above .500 for the first time since May 30.

Harrison Bader, Paul Goldschmidt, Nolan Arenado and Edmundo Sosa homered as the Cardinals pounded out 16 hits. They jumped to a 5-0 lead in the first inning, but it might have been a home-run saving catch by Lars Nootbaar in the seventh inning that saved the win.

After a day off today, the Cardinals will host the Padres in a three-game series beginning Friday night at Busch Stadium.
