ST. LOUIS (AP) — Nolan Arenado and Harrison Bader homered, Adam Wainwright hung tough and the St. Louis Cardinals beat the New York Mets 6-5 for their fifth straight win. Wainwright was activated from the COVID-19 list to make the start. He fell behind 5-2 in the third inning, but didn’t give up any more runs before leaving with two outs in the sixth. The St. Louis bullpen preserved Wainwright’s first win of the season.
