|Upton, Miranda Each Homer as D'backs Top Cards
|PHOENIX (AP) -- Justin Upton and Juan Miranda each hit a three-run homer to lead the Arizona Diamondbacks to a 13-8 win over the visiting St. Louis Cardinals Tuesday night.
Chris Carpenter, who came in 4-0 in 10 career starts against Arizona, gave up at least one run in every inning he pitched, eight total in four innings, and dropped to 0-2 this season.
Lance Berkman, David Freese and Colby Rasmus had solo home runs for the Cardinals, who cut the lead to 9-8 on back-to-back RBI singles by Berkman and Freese off reliever Kam Mickolio in the sixth. The Diamondbacks responded with four runs in the bottom half.
