With John Maine on the mound on Wednesday, the Mets didn't need to provide much offense. Maine threw seven brilliant innings, allowing just one hit and no runs, as Carlos Beltran's two home runs provided more than enough offense as the Mets completed a sweep of the Cardinals. Jose Reyes added his first home run.
