Carpenter Pitches Batting Practice for Cardinals
JUPITER, Fla. (AP) -- St. Louis Cardinals ace Chris Carpenter threw batting practice for the first time since a neck injury.

The 2005 NL Cy Young Award winner threw 40 pitches Sunday, two days after throwing off a mound for the first time in two weeks.

Carpenter threw two sets of 20 pitches with a couple of minutes rest in between. He has been limited since March 3 because of a bulging disk in his neck.
