Stull: Carpenter delivers in the clutch

101 ESPN Cardinal Insider, Brian Stull writes about the big pinch hit at-bat by Matt Carpenter on Monday.

For the fourth time in his young career, Matt Carpenter stepped to the plate against Matt Cain. And as he had the previous three times, Carpenter hit a single off the Giants pitcher—this time knocking in a pair of runs to seal the St. Louis Cardinals 8-2 win over San Francisco on Monday.

“(Cain) is one of the best pitchers in the game and I’ve had some good at-bats against him, but they’ve all been tough,” said Carpenter. “Even tonight, I was down in the count, the count was 1-2 when I got the hit. He makes tough pitches, and fortunately I was able to get the barrel on it tonight and get the job done.
