Brewers Clobber Cardinals, Carpenter
ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Rickie Weeks hit a leadoff homer to begin a miserable outing for Chris Carpenter, and the Milwaukee Brewers capitalized on perhaps the St. Louis Cardinals' shakiest defensive inning of the season in a 12-5 victory Saturday night.

Carpenter (9-2), among the Cardinals' hopes to land an All-Star spot, failed to retire any of the four batters he faced in the fourth. Carpenter was charged with eight runs -- seven earned -- in his shortest outing since April 14, 2009, when he lasted three innings at Arizona before injuring a side muscle that landed him on the 15-day disabled list.

Carpenter was struck on the right forearm by a line drive in his last start, but said he was fine earlier in the week and stayed on his turn.
