Carp picked up his 2nd win and 6 strikeouts. Also, he fanned his 1,000th batter today when Nate McLouth pinch-hit. Pujols was walked much of the time. For the Cardinals, Jim Edmonds and David Eckstein hit home runs. Edmonds also had a double today as the Cards move past Pittsburgh with a score of 4-0. While not a save situation, Jason Isringhausen was brought in for relief in the ninth inning.
The Cardinals are off tomorrow and resume play at Busch Stadium this Friday night against the hated arch-rivals from the north side. For those of you not within the FSN Midwest viewing area, you can watch biased broadcasts of the game on WGN.
