Chris Carpenter’s only career game against Mets in New York was an interleague game. When with Toronto, he allowed one run and four hits in six innings in a 1-0 loss to the Mets (the run was scored by Joe McEwing on a single by Mike Piazza in the first).
Of course his last game against the Mets was his only one game in 2007 before going on DL. His only start as a Cardinal against the Mets was in 2005 when he shut them out for seven innings on three hits to move to 21-4 in his Cy Young Award year. Albert Pujols hit two solo home runs, the first in the sixth to put the Cards up 1-0 and John Gall added a two-run home run.
Johan Santana’s only game against Cardinals was last year, when he pitched a six-hitter in a 9-1 win. A Pujols home run provided the only run for the Cardinals.
