ST. LOUIS -- The New York Mets came out of Wednesday night wondering what might be wrong with right-hander Jacob deGrom and hoping nothing serious is amiss with right fielder Jay Bruce.DeGrom allowed homers to Randal Grichuk, Matt Carpenter and Stephen Piscotty, and the Mets lost to the St. Louis Cardinals 8-1.Roughed up for the second straight start, deGrom (7-7) allowed five runs and 12 hits in 4 2/3 innings. He was tagged for a career-worst eight runs and 13 hits in his previous outing against San Francisco.Obviously when you get hit like hes been hit its lack of command, Mets manager Terry Collins said. Thats where hes done a tremendous job since he arrived in the majors leagues, with his command. Its never been an issue. Hes always been down in the zone. Hes always had movement.Collins said video of deGroms recent starts shows pitches staying in the hitting area, allowing hitters to take good swings on hittable pitches.Thats where the issue lies, Collins said. It is due to whatever? Obviously we need to take a look and see how hes doing. In this particular stage of the season, the first thing you look at is fatigue. So well start there.DeGrom said he felt fine Wednesday.When I seem to miss it seems to go right down the middle and it seems to get out of the park or off the wall, deGrom said. These last two have been frustrating, but Ive got another one in five days so I have to get ready for that one.Bruce led off the second with a double but had to leave because of a cramp in his right calf. Pinch-runner Alejandro De Aza scored on a double by Asdrubal Cabrera.His calf knotted up when he was actually jogging out to right field in the first inning, Collins said. When he came in he told me right away, he said, `Im going to try to hit and see if it loosens up. When he went into second base I looked out and he didnt give me the OK, so I went out and checked and he said its really tight. I couldnt afford to have him blow it out so I took him out.Bruce said hes hoping to play on Thursday and doesnt consider it serious.In San Francisco I fouled a ball off my shin, which Ive done too many times in my career, he said. I think it has to do with the way the swelling is dispersing through my muscle or whatever.The Cardinals won for the seventh time in nine games and posted a season high-tying 19 hits.Eight Cardinals had two or more hits, including right-hander Carlos Martinez. Piscotty and Yadier Molina each had three.Its fun to watch them put up crooked numbers in any inning, even against a quality pitcher like deGrom, Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said. When you throw up 19 hits and get (RBI) from six different guys, thats a great overall effort. We had a bunch of hits but not a lot of runs early, but Stephen helped with that home run.Martinez (12-7) gave up one run and four hits over eight innings for his second straight victory.I love how starting pitching set the tone, Matheny said. It was almost a continuation of his last outing. Hes understanding its about location and movement. He can throw anything at any time.Martinez allowed one run on three hits in seven innings against Houston his last time out.These last two outings I feel have been one of my best, Martinez said through a translator. Ive been really listening to Yadi and his advice has been really great and I feel really good about myself right now.ROSTER MOVEThe Mets made a roster move after the game, optioning right-hander Erik Goeddel to Triple-A Las Vegas and recalling left-hander Sean Gilmartin.NOTABLEMets reliever Robert Gsellman is the first pitcher in the modern era to earn a victory in his major league debut as a reliever since John Montefusco on Sept. 3, 1974 with the Giants.TRAINERS ROOMMets: Jon Niese (left knee) may undergo surgery after lasting just one-third of an inning on Tuesday.UP NEXTMets: Seth Lugo (0-2, 3.04) makes his second start in place of injury Steven Matz (left shoulder tightness), who could return late this month.Cardinals: Adam Wainwright (9-7, 4.71) allowed four home runs in 6 2/3 innings July 27 and got a no decision in his lone appearance against the Mets this season.

"Its a tough moment obviously there leaving the ice, especially the way that it happened," said Nicholls, his voice cracking following his final junior game, a London Knights 6-1 blowout victory in the tournaments tiebreaker game. "Saskatoons been a great city for myself and for my family and for my hockey career. "I call the city my home so its a tough way to end things." Bo Horvat scored on a short-handed penalty shot in the first period and Jake Patterson made 32 saves as London clinched a spot in Fridays semifinal against the Portland Winterhawks. The Blades were built with the sole purpose of winning this tournament, but fell well short of expectations in an up-and-down season that included a rocky start, an 18-game winning streak, a stunning first-round Western Hockey League playoff exit and a reality television crew that documented their every move. "With an opportunity like this, you wanna go out with a win so anything less than that was going to be a true disappointment," Blades defencemen Duncan Siemens said with tears in his eyes. "You live and breathe with those guys in that dressing room. Every year you go through it. No matter whether its a win or a loss, its always hard knowing that same group of guys wont be in the dressing room come next year." The Blades were unable to regain the momentum from their upset victory over the Halifax Mooseheads, the No. 1 ranked team in the Canadian Hockey League, earlier in the tournament in either their final round-robin game against Portland or Thursdays tiebreaker. "After that Halifax game there was so much emotion with our team, with the fans, just everything around it and we came down and we just couldnt regain that type of energy and emotion again," Blades coach Lorne Molleken said. "Our players have nothing to be ashamed about. After 51 days of hard practice, they came in and left it on the ice." London, meanwhile, was clinical in dismantling an opponent that simply ran out of gas. "I knew it wasnt going to be an easy game," said Patterson, who gave up five goals in the first period before getting pulled in Londons 9-2 round-robin loss to Halifax. "Obviously the last game I didnt have my best game so I had to battle back and prepare mentally for it and the boys made it easy on me tonight. "It was definitely a total team effort." The winner of the Portland-London semifinal game will earn a berth in Sundays CHL title game against Halifax. Chris Tierney, with a goal and an assist, Seth Griffith, Ryan Rupert, Kyle Platzer and Nikita Zadorov also scored for the Onttario Hockey League champion Knights, who also defeated Saskatoon 3-2 in the tournament opener.ddddddddddddAlex Broadhurst added two assists, while Horvat chipped in with one of his own. "I thought we did a good job of getting back to the basics and the tendencies our team needs to perform to be successful," Knights defenceman Scott Harrington said. Nathan Burns scored for Saskatoon, which got 31 saves from Andrey Makarov in front of 7,895 at the Credit Union Centre before being replaced by Alex Moodie after the sixth London goal. Moodie finished with three stops. Leading 1-0 after Horvats penalty shot goal in the first, the Knights pulled away with two quick strikes during a 49-second span in the second. Griffith walked around Saskatoons Collin Valcourt on a power play and roofed a shot past Makarov at 11:28 before Max Domi fed Tierney for a one-timer at 12:17 The Blades had a golden opportunity to get on the board earlier in the period when Londons Paxton Leroux took a four-minute penalty for checking from behind. But Saskatoon registered just one shot on the lifeless man advantage, a weak effort from Lukas Sutter, while London had three quality scoring chances. The Knights then put the game to bed early in the third. Rupert scored on a feed from in close from Tierny at 2:16, Platzer made it 5-0 just 37 seconds later and Zadorov stretched the lead to six at 3:22. Burns broke Pattersons shutout bid on a nice backhand move at 11:20 for Saskatoons only highlight on a otherwise dismal night for the tournament hosts. The Blades got an early power play in the opening period, but it was the Knights who struck first. After Nicholls brought Horvat down on a short-handed breakaway, the No. 15 ranked North American skater ahead of next months NHL draft beat Makarov with a penalty shot effort that just dribbled over the goal-line. Saskatoon will now reflect on a season that had a little bit of everything. "It was an interesting year, let me tell you that much," Molleken said. "We as a team faced a lot of different adversity, a lot of different pressures. Certainly when we reflect back on this year it was a tremendous learning experience for all of us and we had lots of things to be extremely proud of." Notes: Portland beat London 6-3 in the round robin. ... Prior to Thursdays game, the CHL suspended Blades defenceman Dalton Thrower for the rest of the Memorial Cup for his hit to the head on Winterhawks forward Taylor Leier in Wednesdays final round-robin game. Portland coach Travis Green says its unlikely that Leier, who is suffering from post-concussion symptoms, will play again in the tournament. ... Only two teams that have played in a tiebreaker game at the Memorial Cup have gone on to hoist the trophy -- the 2009 Windsor Spitfires and last years Shawinigan Cataractes.
