Flushing, NY (Sports Network) - Jon Niese went six scoreless innings and the Mets defeated the Cardinals, 6-1, on Sunday.

On Sunday, Kirk Nieuwenhuis hit a two-run homer and drove in three while Andres Torres added a two-run triple for the New York, which has won seven of its last nine games and will look for the sweep on Monday.

Jake Westbrook (4-5) gave up five runs on nine hits in five-plus innings and Adron Chambers had an RBI single in the eighth for the Cardinals, losers of five straight and eight of 10.
