Carp joins 56 Cards top pitching performances


Chris Carpenter
picked up his first win since the 2006 World Series on Thursday, tossing a one-hitter for seven innings against the Pittsburgh Pirates at Busch Stadium.

Through the courtesy of statman Tom Orf, we offer the list of St. Louis Cardinals starting pitchers who have allowed either one hit or no hits in an official game over the last 50 years.

In only two of the 55 cases listed below did the Cards starter take a loss – Bob Gibson in 1968 and Anthony Reyes in 2006. Carpenter almost joined them on Thursday until the offense turned a 1-0 deficit into a 2-1 lead in the home seventh.

Not surprisingly, Gibson is first on the list with four such top games. Those tied for second are less obvious, though. Silvio Martinez, Jose DeLeon and Bob Forsch all had three no/one hitters. Thursday was Carpenter’s second.
