ST. LOUIS (AP)
Cardinals third baseman Matt Carpenter left Tuesday night's game against San Diego with an apparent injury after hitting a double in the first inning.
Carpenter got the start at third for the second consecutive game as David Freese sat out. Freese is mired in a 6-for-42 slump over the last 12 games, dropping his batting average from .312 to .259 since May 9.
