Cards' Carpenter Comeback Player of Year for NL

In Baseball news, St. Louis Cardinals Pitcher Chris Carpenter is voted National League Comeback Player of the Year by the Associated Press.

Limited to 4 starts over the previous 2 seasons due to elbow surgery and a shoulder injury, Carpenter responds this year with a sterling 17-4 record and a League Leading 2.24 ERA.

Carpenter won 11-straight games from early July to early September as the Cardinals solidified the hold on the National League Central Division Pennant.

Carpenter gets the start in Game One for the Cardinals against the NL West Champion Los Angeles Dodgers on Wednesday.
