(ST. LOUIS, MO) - Chris Carpenter picked up his ninth win of the season as the St. Louis Cardinals halted their two-game skid with a 6-1 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Carpenter was in trouble most of the night, but managed to get out of jams thanks to inducing four double-play grounders in the seven innings he pitched.
He allowed a run on nine hits to improve to 9 and 3.
Brendan Ryan went 4 for 4 including a two-run double with Mark DeRosa adding a solo home run.
