|Cardinals Hammer Brewers
|ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Chris Carpenter won his 10th straight decision despite laboring at times, Skip Schumaker was 4 for 4 with two RBIs as the St. Louis Cardinals clobbered the Milwaukee Brewers 10-3 Wednesday night.
Yadier Molina had a pair of RBI doubles and finished with three hits for the NL Central leaders, whose 10 1/2 game lead is the best in baseball. Troy Glaus, activated from the 60-day disabled list from a shoulder injury Monday, struck out as a pinch hitter to end the sixth in his first at-bat of the season.
The Brewers had runners in scoring position every inning except the sixth, the final inning for Carpenter (15-3), when he retired the side in order.
