NEW YORK -- The only thing Jenrry Mejia popped Monday night was his fastball. Showing off a sizzling heater with wicked movement, Mejia pitched four-hit ball into the seventh inning and led the New York Mets over the St. Louis Cardinals 2-0. Mejia (3-0) bounced back well from a torn blister on his right middle finger that limited him to five innings in his last start. The 24-year-old righty began the game by getting Matt Carpenter to look at three straight strikes, and rarely was in trouble. "Coming off the blister ... we werent sure what he was going to give us," Mets manager Terry Collins said. "He gave us more than we expected, for sure." David Wright lined an early RBI single that extended his hitting streak to 12 games and Kyle Farnsworth earned his first save as the New Yorks newest closer. On an evening when the Mets debuted new camouflage tops to salute the military, they looked sharp, particularly on a double play started by shortstop Ruben Tejada. The Cardinals lost for the third time in four games. "Their shortstop kind of stopped any kind of rally from happening," Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said. "Being frustrated, I dont think theres anything wrong with that," he said after the NL champions were shut out for the third time this year. "I think the bigger story is that our offence will get going on a consistent basis." Mejia struck out seven in 6 2-3 innings and walked three. He stretched his scoreless streak to 13 2-3 innings. Mejia said the blister was hardly a concern. The St. Louis hitters were the ones having trouble, not him. "They know my fastball moves," he said. Scott Rice and Carlos Torres each got two outs before Farnsworth, the Mets third closer this year, pitched the ninth for his first save. Farnsworth inherited the role after Bobby Parnell needed Tommy John surgery and Jose Valverde struggled. Farnsworth had two saves last season for Pittsburgh. Tyler Lyons (0-1) lost in his first major league game of the season. Promoted from Triple-A Memphis earlier in the day to take the rotation spot of injured Joe Kelly, he allowed two runs and six hits in six innings. A 26-year-old lefty with a big-breaking slider, Lyons struck out seven. Hes another in the long line of tall, homegrown pitchers developed by the Cardinals, and went 2-4 last year in his first big league season. Lyons struck out the first two batters in the third before Eric Young Jr. singled for the Mets first hit. Slumping Curtis Granderson was hit by a pitch and Wright singled for a 1-0 lead. Lyons throwing error on a tapper set up another run in the sixth. Daniel Murphy walked, later stole third and scored on a single by Travis dArnaud. Mejia escaped his biggest jam in the sixth when, with runners at the corners and one out, he retired Matt Holliday on a popup and Matt Adams on a grounder. The previous inning, the Mets backed Mejia with a sweet double play. Tejada dived to stop Jon Jays grounder up the middle and flipped to Murphy, and the second baseman made a barehanded catch and spun quickly for the relay. "Tremendous double play," Collins praised. NOTES: Wright has eight hits in his last three games. He has eight RBIs in eight games. ... Murphy has been safe on 25 straight steal tries. ... Cardinals C Yadier Molina stretched his hitting streak to 12 games. ... Granderson struck out three times. Hes hitless in his last 19 at-bats and is in a 4-for-47 slump that includes 17 strikeouts. ... St. Louis SS Jhonny Peralta was hitless in three at-bats and is in an 0-for-15 rut. ... The Mets promoted 40-year-old OF Bobby Abreu from Triple-A. He didnt get into the game. ... St. Louis RHP Eric Fornataro made his major league debut and pitched a perfect eighth. Molina waited outside the dugout to pat him on the head. ... Cardinals RHP Adam Wainwright (3-1, 1.80) starts Tuesday night against RHP Dillon Gee (1-0, 3.71). ... Kelly strained his left hamstring trying to beat out a bunt last week and was put on the 15-day disabled list. ...

"It was nerve-wracking, but we pulled through," said Collaros, who threw four touchdown passes to lead the Toronto Argonauts (8-4) to a 33-27 win over the Calgary Stampeders (9-3) in front of 28,781 fans at McMahon Stadium. Late in the fourth quarter with Toronto clinging to a 32-26 lead, Brad Sinopli caught a pass from Calgary quarterback Kevin Glenn and appeared to run for a 57-yard touchdown, but the play was called back after Arthur was flagged for offensive pass interference. "Its just kind of unfortunate that we were on the wrong side of the call," said Arthur, who finished the game with seven catches for 68 yards and a touchdown. "Its definitely a little bit frustrating. Its a play thats called 100 times a game. I thought it was good." In the games final seconds with the Argos leading 33-26 and Bo Levi Mitchell in at quarterback for the Stamps, Calgary receiver Anthony Parker hauled in a pass that was tipped at the goal line, but officials deemed that he fell out of bounds as time expired. The Argos were assessed an offside penalty on the play, so Calgary was given one more shot to tie up the game with no time left on the clock. Mitchell completed a pass to Arthur, who booted the ball into the end zone. A chase for the ball ensued, but Torontos Alonzo Lawrence got to it first and smothered it to preserve the victory. "I was wishing I was still in college so we could just take a couple knees and run the clock out," said Collaros, who completed 24-of 36 passes for 330 yards. "That doesnt happen up here." Toronto coach Scott Milanovich praised his team for finding a way to win their third straight road game with Collaros in at quarterback for Ricky Ray, whos out with a shoulder injury. "We showed a lot of character," Milanovich said. "You dont just win these games. Teams dont just -- on the road with back-up players -- win them without character and resolve and belief in the guys next to them. Were proud of them." Collaros also threw TD passes to John Chiles, Andre Durie and Dontrelle Inman as Toronto halted Calgarys four-game winning streak overall and 10-game streak at home. "We take care of each other and we want to play for each other," Collaros said. "That in itself is special and we believe in each other. Were going to have to continue to do that down the stretch here." Swayze Waters added a field goal and a pair of singles for the Argos. After watching Calgarys previous two games from the sidelines with a knee injury, Glenn returned to throw a pair of touchdown passes to Arthur and Marquay McDaniel. "As a team we cant get complacent and just keep riding the wave," Glenn said. &quuot;Weve got to make sure that we come out every week and get better and we didnt do that tonight.dddddddddddd" Back-up quarterback Drew Tate also ran for a one-yard TD, Rene Parades kicked a field goal and a single, and Rob Maver booted a single. Arthur was also credited with a single for kicking the ball into the end zone on the final play. Early in the first quarter, Glenn was intercepted by Pat Watkins, who ran the ball back to the Calgary three-yard line. Two plays later, Collaros tossed a four-yard touchdown pass to Chiles to give Toronto an early 7-0 lead. The Stamps answered right back with a 52-yard field goal by Parades, before Glenn threw an 11-yard strike to Arthur in the end zone to give the Stamps a 10-7 lead. Rob Maver kicked a 59-yard single for Calgary late in the first quarter, before Waters responded right back with an 80-yard single for Toronto early in the second. After Tate ran for a one-yard touchdown, Collaros responded by engineering a six-play, 65-yard drive that he capped off by tossing a two-yard touchdown pass to Durie to pull the Argos within three points. Larry Taylor ran the opening kickoff of the second half back 34 yards to give the Stamps great field position at their own 54-yard line. Calgary took advantage as McDaniel caught a 17-yard touchdown pass from Glenn just four plays later to put the Stamps up 25-15. The Argos responded right back on their next drive as Collaros threw a 28-yard pass to Inman, who was wide open in the end zone. The Stamps had a great chance to extend their lead, but Watkins hauled in his second interception of the game when he picked off a pass by Glenn that was intended for Kenny Stafford. Waters then kicked a 40-yard field goal late in the third quarter before Collaros led the Argos on a four-play, 70-yard drive that he finished off by throwing the game-winning touchdown to Bradwell. "Were kind of rolling right now," Bradwell said. "These last few wins weve had in a row, its just something to build on. Weve just got to keep getting better every week and keep rolling." Notes: Parades had kicked 15 straight field goals until he missed a 34-yarder late in the fourth quarter that went through the end zone for a 47-yard single. a Argos running back Chad Kackert missed the game with a concussion he suffered during Torontos 31-29 road win in Regina over the Saskatchewan Roughriders last Saturday. Kackert also missed the six games leading up to the win over the Riders with a knee injury. a The Stampeders honoured former owner Sid Gutsche, who passed away last week at the age of 64, with a moment of silence before the game. Players also wore memorial decal on their helmets. a The Stamps and Argos now have all-time records of 42-42-1 against each other. a The Argos were also the last team to beat the Stamps at home when they won 22-14 on Aug. 18, 2012.
