McNeil's throw saves Mets vs Cards after Syndergaard hurt

NEW YORK (AP) With a beleaguered bullpen having so much trouble closing games for the New York Mets lately, second baseman Jeff McNeil took it upon himself to save this one.

McNeil made a perfect throw from right field to home plate for the final out, and the Mets held off the St. Louis Cardinals 8-7 on Saturday night after starter Noah Syndergaard exited with a strained right hamstring.

"That was just a whirlwind of emotions," rookie slugger Pete Alonso said.
