The Mets had scored a team-record 52 runs in their previous four games, including 30 in the first two of this series. Verlander (11-3) prevented a sweep, holding New York to one run and seven hits.
Verlander finished June with a 6-0 record and a 0.92 ERA, and tied CC Sabathia for the major league lead in wins this season. Verlander has won his last seven starts, allowing two or fewer runs in each.
Jose Valverde finished for his 19th save.

Cardinals starter Jaime Garcia (7-3) gave up five runs, 10 hits and a walk in 5 1-3 innings.
Orioles starter Brian Matusz (1-4) yielded a career-high eight runs and nine hits in 3 1-3 innings and lost his fourth straight start.
