Taking the mound for only the fourth time in 2012, missing a rib after surgery to cure numbness on his right side, 37-year-old Chris Carpenter pitches scoreless ball into the sixth inning, rookie Pete Kozma delivers a three-run homer, and the defending champion Cardinals beat the Washington Nationals, 8-0, to take a 2-1 lead in their N.L. division series.
