Matt Carpenter homered for the sixth consecutive game and Paul DeJong hit a tiebreaking double in St. Louis' three-run ninth inning, helping the Cardinals beat Chicago to split their day-night doubleheader.

Carpenter entered as a defensive replacement in the sixth and hit a solo drive in the seventh for his fifth homer in two days.

6th consecutive game hitting HRs; 5 HRs in 2 days; 8 HRs in 6 games; didn't even start the 6th game (the 2nd part of a doubleheader); his last 12 base-hits are all for extra-bases (no singles)

Not a bad week, lol

(The MLB record, btw, is HR in 8 consecutive games by Hall-of-Famer Seattle Mariner Ken Griffey Jr. a quarter-century ago.)

Bad baserunning ? Hitting HRs takes care of that. lol

I shouldn't give Carpenter any more grief, though, the entire team is fundamentally poor and has been for a few years now.
