Cardinals: Matt Carpenter belongs in the leadoff spot

The walk-off 9-8 win ended the Cardinals two-game skid and (hopefully) jump started a St. Louis offense that has been in a terrible funk this week. Most importantly, the man right in the thick of the offensive outburst was third baseman Matt Carpenter.
