Cardinals' Matt Carpenter: Stays hot with 32nd homer

Carpenter went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run to help the Cardinals to a 7-0 win over the Royals on Friday.

There seems to be no end in sight for Carpenter's ridiculous tear, as this marked his third straight game with a long ball and his sixth time leaving the yard in his last seven games. It might seem improbable given how slowly he started the season, but the 32-year-old is now boasting an MVP-caliber .280/.391/.600 slash line to go along with 32 homers through 403 at-bats.
