Cardinals get 1st win over Rangers since 2011 World Series

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) Matt Carpenter almost homered and almost got picked off in the same decisive inning that pushed the St. Louis Cardinals to their first victory over Texas since the 2011 World Series.

Carpenter was initially given a two-run homer in the fifth inning after his opposite-field shot that hit the wide pad atop the 14-foot wall in left field, bounced up and came back down into the field of play. That was changed to an RBI double on replay review after the Rangers challenged the call, but still ignited a five-run outburst.

"That was big ... let's figure out a way, able to break through and have a big inning," manager Mike Shildt said. "It was a big hit, but more importantly we were able to do something with it."
