Harvey had no-decisions in eight of his previous nine starts, and the Mets have scored just 18 runs while he's been in the game during his last 10 outings, according to STATS.

"If I go seven zeros, we're still playing the ballgame." Harvey said. "It's an incredible lineup. You really have to be locked in one through nine."

St. Louis went ahead in the third when Pete Kozma hit an opposite-field single to right for the first hit of the game and Carpenter tripled past Byrd, who tried for a sprawling catch in right but allowed the ball to bounce past him.

New York's bullpen gave up a run in the eighth, when Carpenter and Beltran singled off Scott Rice, and Matt Holliday and Allen Craig singled against LaTroy Hawkins.

A day of dazzling defense included Craig's diving stop at first base in the eighth to rob Omar Quintanilla of a hit, two nifty pickups by Daniel Descalso on slow rollers to third in the seventh and a pair of challenging catches by center fielder John Jay. He ran to the warning track for Lucas Duda's two-out drive with a runner on second in the fourth and nabbed a wind-blown drive by Jordany Valdespin leading off the sixth.

"Our guys played a flawless game," Wainwright said.

Next month, Wainwright and Harvey could find themselves in the same clubhouse at Citi Field — on the NL All-Star team.

"That's a long time from now," Wainwright said. "I've got to get a lot of different hitters out before I start worrying about All-Star hitters."

NOTES: St. Louis took two of three in the series and improved the big leagues' best record to 43-23. ... Craig has 49 RBIs. ... Kozma had three of the Cardinals' 10 hits.
