The St. Louis Cardinals have been on a roll early this season. Matt Carpenter has been one key reason for it. On Monday, April 20th, he was rewarded for it.
Major League Baseball honored the third baseman with the National League Player of the Week. This is the first career honor for Carpenter. During the past week (April 12th-19th) he led the Majors with seven doubles, 22 total bases, five RBI's and four runs. He currently leads the team batting 400, two homers, 10 RBI's and 18 hits for the first place Cardinals.
The Cardinals are on the road April 21st against the Washington Nationals for a 3-game series. First pitch is at 6:05pm CT
