Matt Carpenter hits fifth homer Thursday

Matt Carpenter went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in the Cardinals' 10-2 loss to the Braves on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact:

The home run was nice to see from Carpenter, because he has been awful to start the season. He owns a .671 OPS through 43 games with a .239 AVG and a .150 ISO. Carpenter got off to a horrible start last season and turned it into a career year, so owners should exercise patience with the veteran infielder.
