Carpenter One-Hits Milwaukee for 16th Win
MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Chris Carpenter pitched a one-hitter, allowing only a double to Jody Gerut in the fifth inning, and struck out 10 as the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Milwaukee Brewers 3-0 Monday.

Carpenter (16-3) won his 11th straight decision and leads the majors with a 2.16 ERA.

Carpenter matched the best game of his career, having pitched a one-hitter in 2005 for St. Louis against Toronto. He walked two, and the only hit was Gerut's clean shot down the left-field line with one out.

Albert Pujols hit a two-run double in the fifth, then doubled again and scored in the seventh.
