Carpenter shines in spring debut

Feb 28, 2009 - 9:31 PM JUPITER, Florida (Ticker) -- Chris Carpenter pitched two hitless innings to help lead the St. Louis Cardinals to a 9-2 victory over the Washington Nationals in Grapefruit League action on Saturday.

Carpenter, the 2005 Cy Young Award winner, has only started four games in the last two seasons. He underwent elbow surgery last September.

Ryan Ludwick delivered a two-run double in the third inning to help pace the Cardinals offense.

Albert Pujols reached base in both of his plate appearances. He started the Cardinals' scoring with an RBI single in the first inning, and was hit by a pitch in his second at-bat.

Daniel Cabrera struggled in his Washington debut, allowing two runs and four hits in two innings.
