Brandon Nimmo hit a homer and scored twice to lead the visiting New York Mets past the St. Louis Cardinals 4-3 on Monday.

The Mets snapped a three-game losing streak while the Cardinals lost for the fifth time in six games.

Mets starting pitcher Sean Manaea (2-1) allowed three runs on six hits and a walk in six innings. He struck out one.

Relievers Jake Diekman, Adam Ottavino and Edwin Diaz worked a scoreless inning each, with Diaz earning his fifth save of the season.

Cardinals starting pitcher Kyle Gibson allowed three runs, two earned, on seven hits and two walks in six innings. He struck out four.

Reliever Andrew Kittredge (0-1) allowed Nimmo's decisive homer and took the loss.

Ivan Herrera hit a two-run double and Willson Contreras had a RBI double to account for the Cardinals' scoring.

The Mets took a 1-0 lead in the first inning. Francisco Lindor drew a two-out walk and scored on DJ Stewart's double into the left-center-field gap.

J.D. Martinez walked to extend the inning, but Brett Baty grounded out to strand the runners.

The Mets pushed their lead to 3-0 in the fifth inning. Tomas Nido hit a leadoff single, Nimmo followed with a single, then both runners advanced a base on right fielder Lars Nootbaar's error.

Starling Marte drove in one run with a groundout, then Lindor drove in another with a sacrifice fly.

The Cardinals tied the score 3-3 in the sixth inning. Jose Fermin hit a leadoff single and scored on Contreras' double.

Paul Goldschmidt walked and Herrera hit his two-run double with two outs. Herrera was thrown out at third trying to advance on the throw home.

Nimmo's seventh-inning homer -- his fourth of the season -- off Kittredge put the Mets up 4-3.

Harrison Bader hit a leadoff double for the Mets in the eighth inning, but he was thrown out trying to reach third on a groundout to derail the scoring threat.
