NEW YORK (AP) -- Jose Reyes made a huge impact in the field in his return from a hamstring injury, turning a difficult double play with the bases loaded in the eighth inning after making a diving stop that saved a run, and the New York Mets welcomed back their two All-Stars with a 4-2 win over the St. Louis Cardinals on Tuesday night.

Carlos Beltran also was back in the Mets' lineup after missing three games with a high fever. He hit two doubles, singled, walked twice and scored a run for New York, all while still very congested.

Angel Pagan and Daniel Murphy hit two-run doubles, and Dillon Gee (9-3) pitched seven sharp innings in the Mets' second win in five games.

Lance Berkman hit a mammoth homer and starter Kyle Lohse (8-7) had an RBI single for St. Louis.
