NLCS Game 3: Carpenter matches Gibson

CARDINALS ace Chris Carpenter, making his 12th postseason start, nailed down another win Wednesday night as the Redbirds took the upper-hand of the NLCS, winning Game 3 at Busch Stadium, 4-3.

The Brewers, likewise, sent their ace to the mound, but Yovani Gallardo gave up all four runs. Carpenter passed Matt Morris for the most starts by a St. Louis pitcher in the postseason. He also picked up his 7th postseason win, tying the great Bob Gibson.

"When people talk about you in the same sentence as Bob Gibson, it's pretty neat. And Bob Gibson, he's a Hall of Fame guy that's a super stud. I've done OK, but I'm not Bob Gibson," said Carpenter, who labored for five innings, allowing three runs on six hits.

Just yesterday, Carpenter was saying how much he needs to enjoy the moment, referencing to the epic NLDS  do-or-die matchup against Roy Halladay.

"That's what's so fun about this game and pitching. You got out there, you have guys on the other side grinding out at-bats, pressuring you all night long. You have a few infield hits, a couple broken bats, and the next thing you know, you're in trouble every single inning. You never know."

For the record, Gibson made nine postseason starts compared to Carpenter's dozen. Gibson went 7-2 (1.89 ERA) in the postseason, and now Carpenter stands at 7-2 (3.10 ERA).
