June 13 (Bloomberg) -- Matt Harvey suffered his first loss of the Major League Baseball season as the New York Mets fell to the St. Louis Cardinals 2-1 this afternoon at Citi Field.

Harvey, 24, allowed one run over seven innings, surrendering five hits and striking out seven. He entered the game 5-0 for the season and had not lost in his previous 14 starts dating to September. New York has averaged less than three runs per game in Harvey’s last nine starts.

The Cardinals took a 1-0 lead in the third inning on a run-scoring triple from Matt Carpenter. They stretched the lead to 2-0 off New York relief pitcher Scott Rice.

Marlon Byrd homered with one out in the ninth inning for New York’s lone run. John Buck followed with a double but the Mets were unable to tie the game as Kirk Nieuwenhuis grounded out and Josh Satin struck out.

Adam Wainwright (10-3) pitched seven shutout innings to record the victory and become baseball’s first 10-game winner.
