Matt Carpenter fouled off the first pitch, then muscled up. The curveball he hooked cleared the right-field wall, a walk-off, two-run home run that gave the Cardinals a 5-3 extra-inning win over the Milwaukee Brewers in the second game in this series. Carpenter’s second home run of the season salvaged a night in which the Cardinals went scoreless through the first five innings and stranded 13 base runners, but fought back to survive with rallies in the ninth and 10th.
