    The St. Louis Cardinals and Chicago Cubs wasted no time trading blows in the first game of their crucial four-game series.

    Then, the Cardinals' Matt Carpenter delivered a haymaker that put the rival Cubs on the ropes.

    Carpenter homered in the 10th inning against Craig Kimbrel in the All-Star closer's return from the injured list, and St. Louis regrouped after blowing a late lead to beat the Cubs 5-4 Thursday night. The teams will meet six more times in the final 10 days of the regular season.
