DeJong lifts Cardinals over Yanks 4-3 on Carpenter’s return


Associated press

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Paul DeJong hit a two-run double with two outs in the eighth inning, lifting the Cardinals against the New York Yankees 4-3 on Matt Carpenter’s return to St. Louis. Carpenter drew a standing ovation on his first visit to the city where he played 11 seasons and then had two hits. Aaron Judge and Josh Donaldson also had two hits apiece for the Yankees, and Donaldson drove in two hits as New York took a 3-2 lead. The Cardinals erased that in the eighth. Nolan Arenado hit a one-out single and Tyler O’Nell walked a two-out single on a full count. DeJong, playing his sixth game since being recalled from Triple-A, doubled up on the right.
