Mets-Cardinals preview

Defense, pitching and home games have been sources of irritation for the St. Louis Cardinals.

But hitting homers can cover a multitude of sins, and St. Louis is currently in position for its sixth straight postseason berth because it continues to crush the ball over the wall.

As the Cardinals start a three-game series Tuesday night with the New York Mets at Busch Stadium, they'll do so having belted a National League-high 173 homers, including 26 in their last 12 games.
