ST. LOUIS (AP) _ Albert Pujols hit an RBI double during a
four-run first inning and the St. Louis bullpen bailed out Chris
Carpenter as the Cardinals beat the Milwaukee Brewers 4-3 Wednesday night for a 2-1 edge in the NL championship series.

In a matchup of aces, neither Carpenter nor 17-game Yovani
Gallardo made it past the fifth. The one-run lead Carpenter handed
over was just enough, as four relievers combined for four perfect
innings.

Kyle Lohse, pitching on 12 days’ rest, starts Game 4 Thursday
for the wild-card Cardinals against Randy Wolf.
