    Leake got off to an impressive start in 2017, going 5-2 to begin the campaign, but has struggled mightily since. His 2017 season with the Cardinals will end with a 7-12 record and a 4.21 earned-run average after losing 10 of his last 12 decisions.

    Corey Knebel pitched the ninth for his 30th save. He allowed a leadoff single to Yadier Molina, struck out the next two batters, and then watched Broxton snag Randal Grichuk's deep blast to end the game.

  • Matt Carpenter homers, Cardinals beat up on Brewers 10-2 Posted on 29 August 2017 at 11:52pm

    Carpenter's shot to right in the fifth had added importance for the third baseman after he had pledged $10,000 for every home run that he hit the rest of the season to Hurricane Harvey relief efforts. The Galveston, Texas native looked up and pointed two fingers toward the night sky as he touched the plate to extend the Cardinals' lead to 9-1.
