Busch Stadium: 10/17/06
Cardinals vs Mets

Jeff Weaver pitched 6 strong innings for the Cardinals allowing just 2 runs. Tom Glavine looked sharp early for the Mets, but a 4th inning solo by Pujols got the Cardinals bats going and Glavine was out of the game by the 5th trailing 3-2. Chris Duncan provided an insurance run with a pinch-hit solo shot in the 6th. Adam Wainwright got the final 4 outs to give the Cards a 3-2 series lead heading back to Shea.
