Carpenter is 4-for-8 with six RBI and three runs in addition to his two bombs as the series goes to St. Louis tied 1-1.
 
10/3/2014 10:43:00 PM

Insight: He took Clayton Kershaw deep in the sixth inning, but the big blow came in the seventh, with a bases-clearing double, which gave the Cardinals a 7-6 lead. Carpenter finished his impressive night with four RBI, and was the biggest reason why St. Louis has a 1-0 series lead.

7/25/2014 9:19:00 PM
Description: Cardinals third baseman Matt Carpenter went 3-for-5 with a solo homer and two runs Friday against the Cubs.

6/17/2014 4:37:00 PM
Description: Cardinals third baseman Matt Carpenter has gone 4-for-34 (.118) over his last nine games and is not in Tuesday night's starting lineup.
Insight: Carpenter is batting .283 with 25 RBI and 44 runs scored. He won't match last year's totals, but most people expected a drop in production after his career year. Daniel Descalso will get the start.
 
Hot6/3/2014 10:40:00 PM
Description: Cardinals third baseman Matt Carpenter has racked up 27 hits in his last 73 at-bats (.370).
Insight: Carpenter has compiled 11 multi-hit efforts in his last 18 games and raised his average from .256 to .292 in that span. He still has just one home run in 233 at-bats this season, but he's doubled 14 times and scored 38 runs.
 
5/25/2014 12:25:00 PM
Description: Cardinals third baseman Matt Carpenter has collected a mere two hits in 13 lifetime at bats versus Reds starter Mike Leake.
Insight: That's not what you want to see. Neither is Carpenter's puny .275 batting average, which is 43 points lower than what he hit last season. Your best bet Sunday would probably be to leave Carpenter on your team's bench.
 
5/23/2014 10:09:00 AM
Description: St. Louis third baseman Matt Carpenter is a career .591 hitter (13-for-22) against Reds starter Homer Bailey.
Insight: Carpenter's numbers are way down from last season. He's batting just .266 with a .695 OPS after batting .318 and leading the league in runs, hits and doubles in 2013. Perhaps this matchup will help.

4/8/2014 1:35:00 PM
Description: St. Louis third baseman Matt Carpenter is a .579 career average against Cincinnati right-hander Homer Bailey.
Insight: Carpenter is 11-for-19, though without much power (two doubles, nine singles). Fantasy owners hope he'll get close to last year's breakout season (.318, 126 runs, 199 hits, 78 RBI).
 
4/3/2014 10:18:00 AM
Description: St. Louis third baseman Matt Carpenter owns a .629 career average against Cincinnati right-hander Homer Bailey.
Insight: Carpenter is 10-for-16, though without much power (two doubles, eight singles). The Cardinals have scored just one run in two games, so even with this favorable matchup it might be one to avoid until their bats start going.

Insight: Thursday will be the first time these two have met in a postseason environment. Overall, Carpenter hit .278 with six RBI in 72 at bats against Pittsburgh during the regular season.
 
9/4/2013 12:34:00 PM
Description: Cardinals second baseman Matt Carpenter has been a doubles machine this season (45 two-baggers in 530 at bats). He'd be lucky to hit anything Wednesday versus Bronson Arroyo, though.
