      Cardinals 3B Matt Carpenter removed from Saturday's lineup after rain delay

      Cardinals third baseman Matt Carpenter was a late scratch from Saturday's lineup due to a rain delay. The Cardinals opted to remove the majority of their regular starters prior to the start of the game, one that has been delayed for nearly an hour due to rain. Mark Reynolds will get the start at third base instead and hit fourth in the lineup.

      Cardinals 3B Matt Carpenter goes 4 for 7 in doubleheader

      Cardinals third baseman Matt Carpenter got on base four times in the nightcap of Wednesday's doubleheader against Pittsburgh, recording a double, a triple, two walks and three runs. That's a 4 for 7 day -- with all four hits going for extra bases -- and five runs for Carpenter, pushing him to 101 trips around the bases on the year. He's been racking up multi-hit games lately like it's his job. Oh, wait, it is his job.

      Matt Carpenter continues to lead Cardinals' offensive charge

      Cardinals third baseman Matt Carpenter went 1 for 4 with a run scored in Monday's 3-0 win over the Pirates. Carpenter's run would be the difference maker, as the third baseman scored on a routine single mishandled in the outfield by Gregory Polanco in the ninth inning. The 29-year-old has been the catalyst of St. Louis' offense this season, leading the team in home runs and runs batted in. With four multi-hit performances in his last seven games, Carpenter is primed to lead the Cardinals into the postseason.

      Cardinals 3B Matt Carpenter connects for 27th home run

      Cardinals third baseman Matt Carpenter smashed his 27th home run of the season, finishing 2 for 5 in the loss to Milwaukee on Sunday. So much for Carpenter not offering much power. One of the negatives owners faced with Carpenter from a Fantasy perspective is that he wasn't expected to have much power compared to a typical third baseman. It appears he's successfully swapped some of his average for a very nice boost in power. Carpenter is currently fifth among all third baseman in home runs this year.

      Cardinals' Matt Carpenter stays hot with two-hit effort in loss

      Cardinals third Matt Carpenter went 2 for 5 with a double, an RBI and a stolen base in a 4-3 loss to Milwaukee on Friday. It's been quite a season for the Cardinals third baseman, as he has a career-high 26 home runs and 81 RBI. He's been especially hot over his last 10 games, hitting .400 with five home runs and six doubles in that span. He is far more valuable at second base and that eligibility alone will alter his draft status greatly going into next season.
