Carpenter homers in 6th straight, Cards top Cubs for split

CHICAGO (AP) Matt Carpenter has a garden in his backyard that was planted by teammate Adam Wainwright. The infielder is using the fresh ingredients to make his own salsa, and he brought some on St. Louis' road trip for the first time.

Apparently, it's one potent mixture.

Carpenter homered for the sixth consecutive game and Paul DeJong hit a tiebreaking double in the Cardinals' three-run ninth inning, helping St. Louis beat the Chicago Cubs 6-3 on Saturday for a split of their day-night doubleheader.
