NLCS reset: Mets run rampant
Mets overwhelm Redbirds
The Mets hit four homers and used a six-run sixth to rout the Cardinals and even the NLCS at two games apiece. Carlos Delgado homered and drove in five, Carlos Beltran hit a pair of jacks and David Wright added a solo shot, while Jose Valentin's three-run double highlighted the big sixth.

Cards can't plug floodgates
The Cardinals belted three homers, but they allowed the Mets a quartet of long balls and a six-run sixth inning to lose the lead in the NLCS. Yadier Molina homered and drove in two, while Jim Edmonds and David Eckstein added blasts, but the Redbirds couldn't stop their relentless opponents.
