Tommy Pham, Paul DeJong and Luke Voit all homered and Lance Lynn pitched seven shutout innings of three-hit ball as the St. Louis Cardinals beat the New York Mets 6-0 on Sunday at Busch Stadium. It was Lynn’s longest outing since May 23, when he threw 123 pitches in eight scoreless innings in a 2-1 loss to Clayton Kershaw and the Dodgers. Lynn’s two strikeouts were a season low, but he needed just 93 pitches while facing two batters over the minimum. Lynn’s season record improves to 7-6 and  he lowered his ERA to 3.61.

DeJong had quite a three game series this weekend, going 9 for 12 at the plate with three home runs and four runs batted in.

Trevor Rosenthal struck out the side in the eighth and John Brebbia pitched a scoreless ninth as the Cardinals finished a 6-4 homestand and moved into a tie with the Chicago Cubs for second place in the National League Central. The 43-45 Cardinals trail the first place Milwaukee Brewers (50-41) by five and a half games at the All-Star break.
