ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Chris Carpenter worked eight dominant innings and the St. Louis Cardinals got home runs from Randy Winn and Matt Holliday, winning their seventh in a row with a 7-1 victory over the slumping Philadelphia Phillies on Tuesday night.

Phillies 47-year-old starter Jamie Moyer strained his elbow and lasted only one inning. The Phillies have lost five of six since the All-Star break and demoted another starter earlier in the day, sending Kyle Kendrick to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Carpenter (11-3) faced the Phillies for the first time since opening day in 2006 at Philadelphia and was removed after throwing only 90 pitches and allowing a run on five hits.
