St Louis CardinalsNEW YORK (AP)–Chris Young homered to start New York’s comeback and slumping Curtis Granderson singled in a run as a pinch hitter as Bartolo Colon and the Mets beat the St. Louis Cardinals 4-1 Thursday to send Lance Lynn to his first career loss in April.

Colon allowed four hits in seven innings, struck out eight and walked none. Carlos Torres and Scott Rice split the eighth, and Daisuke Matsuzaka finished the four-hitter with a perfect ninth for his first save since 2000 with the Seibu Lions of Japan’s Pacific League.

New York took three of four from the defending NL champions and has won four of five overall.
