Cardinals look to complete sweep of Nationals

The St. Louis Cardinals just keep on winning. On Wednesday night, the victories took place on and off the field.

Minutes before they polished off a 4-2 victory over the Washington Nationals that stretched their season-long winning streak to eight, they got the evening's biggest triumph: X-rays on National League home run leader and MVP candidate Matt Carpenter came back negative.

Carpenter left the game in the bottom of the seventh after being drilled on the back of the hand by a Matt Grace fastball. The air seemed to go out of the stadium as well as the Fox Sports Midwest booth, but news arrived an inning later that Carpenter checked out all right.
