Matt Carpenter crushes seventh homer Friday

by Elliott Baas | Cardinals Correspondent | Sat, May 25th 11:25am EDT

Matt Carpenter went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in the Cardinals' 5-2 loss to the Braves on Friday.

Fantasy Impact:

Carpenter was dropped to fifth in the order in this one, and responded with his second homer in as many days. He even hit it off a lefty, taking Sean Newcomb deep for a meaningless homer in the ninth. Hopefully, this is the start of a famous Matt Carpenter hot streak. Even if it's not, owners should expect Carpenter-esque numbers going forward, despite his .210 AVG and .171 ISO.
