The New York Mets rolled past the National League-worst St. Louis Cardinals, 6-1, in the series opener on Friday night at Citi Field.

New York jumped out a 5-0 lead over the first three innings and cruised from there. Several players contributed on the offensive side.

Brett Baty had a two-run double, which opened the scoring. Tommy Pham added a pair of RBI singles. Daniel Vogelbach smacked his third home run of the season, while Francisco Lindor chipped in a sacrifice fly. Starling Marte extended his hit streak to seven games.

Tylor Megill bounced back from his rough outing in Pittsburgh, tossing six innings of one-run ball. Dominic Leone and Josh Walker combined to get the final nine outs.

The Mets will try to win the series on Saturday at 4:10 p.m. Kodai Senga will toe the rubber, looking to build off his last outing.
