Carpenter Sharp as Cards Beat Dodgers
ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Chris Carpenter allowed four hits in eight innings to improve to 6-0 against the Los Angeles Dodgers, and the St. Louis Cardinals chased an off-kilter Clayton Kershaw early in a 7-1 victory Thursday night.

Allen Craig had two RBIs without a hit off Kershaw (9-5), who issued consecutive walks on 11 pitches to start the Cardinals' two-run first, meriting a quick visit from pitching coach Rick Honeycutt. Kershaw also got tagged with a liner off his right leg for an infield hit by Aaron Miles in the second and allowed four earned runs in 4 1-3 innings with one strikeout.

Carpenter (10-3) struck out six with no walks.

Andre Ethier homered and singled for the Dodgers, who committed errors on consecutive plays in St. Louis' two-run fourth.
