Matt Carpenter slugged a go-ahead two-run homer in the top of the eighth inning to lead the Cardinals past the Indians 2-1 on Thursday afternoon.

Advice: Carpenter struck out in his first three at-bats against Indians starter Trevor Bauer, but he got to face Marc Rzepczynski in his fourth at-bat and drove a ball over the center field wall to put the Cardinals ahead for good. Carpenter is now batting .322/.387/.612 with six home runs, 23 RBI, and 26 runs scored in 30 games this season. He missed the Cardinals' series in Pittsburgh last weekend due to extreme fatigue, but the 29-year-old third baseman says he feels great now. We believe it.

Matt Carpenter went 2-for-5 with an RBI single and two runs scored in his return to the lineup, and the Cardinals defeated the Indians 8-3 on Tuesday.

Advice: Coming back from a four-game break for "extreme fatigue," Carpenter didn't appear to miss a beat. The third baseman doubled and scored in the seventh before delivering an RBI single and scoring a run in the eighth as well. Carpenter now has 25 runs scored and 21 RBI to go with a .336/.403/.619 line.

Matt Carpenter (fatigue) is back in the Cardinals' lineup for Tuesday's game against the Indians.

Advice: Carpenter hasn't played since last Wednesday due to what the team called "extreme fatigue" and has been put through a long list of tests. It's still unclear exactly what was ailing him, but the Cardinals didn't want to take any chances. They'll likely see how he feels during pre-game warm-ups before officially clearing him, but this is obviously a good sign.
