Tough Inning in Third

After registering his fifth strikeout of the night, Chris Carpenter hit the wall and could not make it out of the third. A double and then home run started the scoring for Arkansas, but it was control issues that did in the Cy Young winner.

The Travelers loaded the bases with a single and a pair of walks, bringing SCards catcher Cody Stanley out first and then the pitching coach. As the bullpen got busy in a hurry, Carp’s final batter hit it on the ground, but Ruben Gotay was unable to get the force.

Springfield packed Hammons Field and gave the warrior a proper send off. Carpenter threw 54 pitches on the night and was touched up for three runs, the only remaining question being what’s next?
