Isaac's Info: Welcome Back Chris Carpenter

Isaac FishCorrespondent IAugust 3, 2008

Chris Carpenter, the St. Louis Cardinals' ace, had been on the DL since April of 2007 due to a torn ligament in his right elbow.

His trainer, Barry Weinberg, said he may never come back to pitch in the big leagues.  On Wednesday, July 30, 2008 he stepped on to the mound to face the struggling Atlanta Braves.

His statline was pretty nice, as he gave up just five hits, one run, and two walks. He did have two strikeouts and a nice play to preserve the team's lead. He had 67 pitches by the time Tony La Russa took him out, because he was working on a pitch count. Tony did not want Carpenter to get hurt again, so he took him out in the fourth inning, despite his nice command.

Personally, I think he had a great game, and I look forward to the rest of his starts in 2008.
