St. Louis Cardinals' pitcher Chris Carpenter made his first rehab start on Monday for Double-A Springfield. This comes just a few months after it was announced that Carpenter was once again out for the season. In fact, many people, including GM John Mozeliak thought they may never see Carpenter pitch again.
Carpenter went 2.2 innings and allowed three runs, two of them earned runs. He was limited to 60 pitches and finished with 38 strikes over 54 pitches. Carpenter left the game to a standing ovation at Hammons Field in Springfield, MO.
