St. Louis ace Chris Carpenter, earning Los Angeles a 5-3 victory over St. Louis on Wednesday night in an NL playoff opener full of missed chances for both teams.
Pitching in the playoffs for the first time in his 11-year career, Wolf lasted 3 2-3 innings against Carpenter, who came in with a career 5-1 record and 2.53 ERA in the postseason.
Matt Kemp hit a two-run homer off Carpenter in the first inning, giving the NL West champions the lead for good.
