Carpenter doesn’t own the Mets


By Tom Orf

Chris Carpenter’s only career game against Mets in New York was an interleague game. When with Toronto, he allowed one run and four hits in six innings in a 1-0 loss to the Mets (the run was scored by Joe McEwing on a single by Mike Piazza in the first).

Of course his last game against the Mets was his only one game in 2007 before going on DL. His only start as a Cardinal against the Mets was in 2005 when he shut them out for seven innings on three hits to move to 21-4 in his Cy Young Award year. Albert Pujols hit two solo home runs, the first in the sixth to put the Cards up 1-0 and John Gall added a two-run home run.

Johan Santana’s only game against Cardinals was last year, when he pitched a six-hitter in a 9-1 win. A Pujols home run provided the only run for the Cardinals.
