With Perfect Night, Carpenter Joins Some Big Cardinals Names

Amid the twists and turns of the St. Louis Cardinals’ extra-innings win at Kansas City Wednesday night was one constant.

Third baseman Matt Carpenter reached base all six times up – via three singles, two doubles and a walk. The gloveless hitter also drove in the two runs that made the difference in the final score.

With the help of researcher Tom Orf, we give you the full list of Cardinals hitters who reached base every time in a game in which they had at least six plate appearances.

Carpenter’s was the 29th occurrence in team history. He became the 21st unique individual as five hitters had multiple such games, led by three Hall of Famers with three each – Rogers Hornsby, Jim Bottomley and Stan Musial.

    Fantastic job by Matt Carpenter, as well as by Wainwright. Sam Freeman collected a win, by keeping the hometeam off the board during the 10th. Good job by Neshek to obtain the first save of a long career.
    It would be nifty if more hitters could chip in and help Carpenter.

    Cards embarrass themselves by proving to be totally inept hitting once again.Pitiful again.Cards suffering from offensive anemia.Taveras the wonderboy proving to be human,not the savior so far,OT `s average chasing Grichuk.What`s up with Wong? Injury?

      Bw, we are not embarrassing ourselves, if this is the best we can hit. It looks like a long season ahead. Hard to win when you can’t score.

    Cards limp noodle heartless feeble excuse for a baseball team loses another one 3-1.Season record 31-31.Hell this might be the high point for the rest of this season.But don`t worry.it`s early and no need to do anything …………………….yet.Hellfire Holliday and Craig might hit double figures in Homers……………….once this offensive juggernaunt gets rolling the Cards might score 5 or 6 runs in one game again.
