St. Louis' Jhonny Peralta hit a tiebreaking home run in the sixth inning and the National League-leading Cardinals hung on to edge the New York Mets 3-2 on Friday as Major League Baseball resumed from the All-Star break.Mets left fielder Kirk Nieuwenhuis just got his glove to the ball but could not stop it going over.Gerardo Parra doubled in the first and scored. His double in the fifth scored Scooter Gennett, who had been hit by a pitch and advanced on a sacrifice by Fiers, who also contributed at the plate.The Nationals-Dodgers game was delayed three times because of a lighting malfunction and finally suspended with the Nationals up 3-2 after five innings.Danks (5-8) exited to loud cheers with a 2-0 lead after he issued a walk to start the seventh.Both homers came in a five-run fifth, the majors-leading 19th time the Blue Jays have scored at least five runs in an inning.Boston pitcher Wade Miley retired his first 16 batters before and was on track for a no-hitter until the seventh but that still was not enough for the Red Sox.
