T4 — Definitely a start to forget for Lester. Perhaps a little rust coming out of the All-Star break. He gets pulled with bases loaded & no outs in 4th. He gave up 7 hits, 5 BB & 5 R in 3 IP. Bass comes in to relieve him.

Just to evince how rare bad starts have been for Lester this year, that's just the 2nd time in his 20 starts this season in which he hasn't pitched at least 5 innings.

T6 — Carpenter's honestly having one of the greatest single-game hitting performances in Cardinals history. He hits a towering home run that barely carries over partition in RF. He's 5-5 with 3 HR, 2 2B & 7 RBI.
