JUPITER, Fla. (AP) _ Jake Westbrook allowed an unearned run while pitching into the sixth inning Wednesday, and the St. Louis Cardinals beat the New York Mets 5-3.

Westbrook, who has a 3.60 spring ERA, retired the final nine batters he faced.

Mets knuckleballer R.A. Dickey left with two on and one out in the sixth inning, clinging to a 1-0 lead. Four batters later, the Cardinals went ahead 5-1, the big blow being Allen Craig’s three run homer off Manny Acosta.

Dickey was charged with two runs _ one unearned. He allowed six hits, struck out five and did not issue a walk. He said he recently made mechanical adjustments on his arm angle and hip positioning.
