Matt Carpenter reached base in five out of six plate appearances Thursday against the Pirates, going 4-for-5 with an RBI triple, a walk and two runs scored.

Carpenter scored the winning run on a walkoff single by Matt Holliday in the 12th. Meanwhile, his double in the fourth inning was his 40th of the season. With a .315/.385/.480 batting line to go along with nine homers, 58 RBI and 90 runs scored, the 27-year-old has proven to be one of this season's best fantasy bargains.
