|Braves Complete Sweep of Cardinals in St. Louis
|ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Javier Vazquez took a shutout into the ninth inning, and the Atlanta Braves roughed up Chris Carpenter in a 9-2 victory on Sunday over the St. Louis Cardinals.
Vazquez allowed a leadoff single to Skip Schumaker and then retired the next 17 batters before Schumaker reached on an infield single in the sixth. It was the 25th complete game of Vazquez's career and his second of the season.
Carpenter, a Cy Young candidate, had his worst outing of the season. He allowed seven earned runs on nine hits in six innings pitched.
