Cardinals third baseman Matt Carpenter left Tuesday night's game against San Diego with an apparent injury after hitting a double in the first inning.
Carpenter appeared to hurt himself as he left the batter's box. Daniel Descalso ran for Carpenter and scored on Carlos Beltran's two-out single, and stayed in the game at third base for St. Louis.
Carpenter got the start at third for the second consecutive game as David Freese sat out. Freese is mired in a 6-for-42 slump over the last 12 games, dropping his batting average from .312 to .259 since May 9.

Carpenter was batting .288 with three home runs and 20 RBI in 39 games with most of his starts at first base in place of injured Lance Berkman. He's the fifth player the team has placed on the disabled list week, following Jon Jay, Allen Craig, Kyle McClellan and Lance...

Been there, done that. As unfortunate as Lance Berkman's injury is, and as devastating a blow it is to the St. Louis lineup, the Cardinals have faced about as much adversity over the past 15 months as any team in Major League Baseball. Yet, they just keep winning. When pitcher Adam Wainwright went down prior to the start of last season, many were already writing off the Cards...
This season’s marketing push from the Cardinals has been tremendous. The billboards and signage around town is simple yet elegant and focuses on the legacy of the franchise. But, as we observed during the first week of the season, a billboard stating that Chris Carpenter (who has been on the DL since Spring Training) is [...]

St. Louis Cardinals first baseman Lance Berkman has been informed that he has a torn meniscus in his right knee.
Berkman’s career is on the line after this injury. In a sense of good news, the MRI did not show any injury to his ACL, the anteriror cruciate ligament.
He is expected to see a surgeon...
So, Adam Wainwright looked like the old Adam Wainwright last night, rattling off the complete game shutout, fanning 9, allowing only 4 hits, 1 walk. He has been mostly average so far this season, with glimpses of his old self, but last night was encouraging (understatement). Yes, this gem came against the Padres, but his next start is Sunday against the Phillies and they aren'...
