Cardinals INF Carpenter leaves with right quad tightness

CHICAGO (AP) St. Louis first baseman Matt Carpenter has left the Cardinals' game against the Chicago Cubs with right quad tightness.

Carpenter reached on an error in the first and was thrown out at home when he tried to score on Jedd Gyorko's two-out double to left-center. Carpenter was replaced by Luke Voit before the Cubs batted in the second inning Sunday night.

The 31-year-old Carpenter is batting .248 with 14 homers and 46 RBIs in 93 games. The team says he is day to day.
