Mulder's forgettable return
Mets 10, Cardinals 8
Mark Mulder gave up nine runs on nine hits in his first game back. (Kathy Willens/AP)
In his first start back from the DL, Mark Mulder had limited success as the lefty hurled just three-plus innings to pick up his sixth loss. Albert Pujols' two-run single, Jose Vizcaino's two-run homer, back-to-back shots by Scott Rolen and Preston Wilson and a two-run eighth capped the Cards' scoring night.
