Rookie Carpenter makes most of opportunity

ST. LOUIS Matt Carpenter arrived at Busch Stadium late Wednesday morning not expecting to see his name in the starting lineup.

Game Picks - Tuesday: October 16, 2012

There was only one pick yesterday and since it included the St. Louis Cardinals, of course it was wrong. Chris Carpenter still looked mean, but he couldn't get the job done as the Giants scored four runs against him (yes, two were unearned) and the Giants won easily.
