Carpenter Pitches Cardinals to Another Series Win
ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Chris Carpenter pitched seven innings of two-hit ball and Albert Pujols broke it open with a three-run double in the seventh as the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Cincinnati Reds 6-0 on Sunday to wrap up a 6-1 homestand.

David Freese homered for the third time in four games on a three-hit day and Ryan Ludwick and Brendan Ryan had an RBI apiece for St. Louis, which took two of three for its seventh series win out of eight this season. The Cardinals are an NL-best 17-8.

Carpenter (4-0) outpitched Aaron Harang (1-4) for the second time this year in a rematch from opening day, striking out eight with three walks. He has won seven straight decisions over the Reds and 13 in a row with a 1.86 ERA against NL Central opponents dating to last season.
