Presto! Cards a win from WS
Mets in a must-win hole
Tom Glavine was chased after four-plus innings, allowing three runs on seven hits, as the Mets fell behind in the NLCS and are a loss away from ending their season. Jose Valentin continued to roll with a two-run double that ignited the Mets in the fourth, but New York was shut out thereafter.

Cardinals can see the light
Preston Wilson's RBI double in the fifth broke a tie and put the Cardinals up for good in a Game 5 win that has the Redbirds one step from the World Series. Albert Pujols drove in his first run of the NLCS on a homer, and Chris Duncan went yard to back Jeff Weaver's superb six innings of work.
