Duque does it up in St. Louis
Reyes a catalyst for Mets
A healthy Orlando Hernandez can be a very good thing for the Mets. El Duque pitched seven strong innings against the Cardinals on Tuesday and contributed two hits, including a two-run double, as the Mets won their second straight game to start the season. Jose Reyes scored the first two Mets runs.

Series at a glance:
Wells' efforts not enough
Kip Wells looked sharp against the Mets, but two of his four runs allowed were unearned because of an error, and except for Scott Rolen's solo home run in the seventh frame, the Cardinals' bats were silent during their second straight defeat to start 2007.
