It certainly wasn't the homecoming Tommy Hunter envisioned.
Now that the Cardinals have forced the World Series to a Game 7 for the first time in nine years, St. Louis manager Tony La Russa must decide whether to send ace Chris Carpenter to the mound on short rest Friday night or start Kyle Lohse or Edwin Jackson.

"C.J., he's a workhorse. Even if he doesn't have his stuff that night, he's going to do whatever he can to keep his team in the game," said Moreland, who had a long homer in the third. "He's been a great, great guy to play behind for us as our No. 1 through the year. Tonight kind of proved it. It might not have been his best night, he might not have had his stuff or his location, but he kept us in the game. That's what he's going to do."
