After Matt Carpenter‘s return to leadoff and the Cardinals’ clubhouse shakeup, offense hasn’t been a significant problem for the Busch Stadium boys. St. Louis is averaging over five runs a game since kicking off a dramatic homestand against the Phillies last Friday night. In fact, aside from the opening contest – which they won 3-to-2 – they’ve managed to score at least five runs in each of their last five games. That’s a feat they managed just once, in a 6-to-7 loss to the Cubs on June 4th, in the previous two weeks.
