Carpenter: 'I'm not Bob Gibson'

(BaseballStL) -- St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Chris Carpenter may not have had his best outing of his career, but it was good enough to give him a franchise-record seven career postseason victories tying him with Bob Gibson.

Carpenter only lasted five innings after giving up three runs on six hits and three walks to the Milwaukee Brewers in Game 3 of the NLCS.

“I’ve always said that anything as a player when you are put in a category as people like Bob Gibson, it’s pretty neat,” Carpenter said.  “He’s a Hall of Fame guy that is a super stud.  I’ve done okay, but I’m not Bob Gibson.”

Gibson, who was part of the Game 3 pre-game ceremony, was 7-2 with a 1.89 ERA in nine postseason starts.  The Hall of Famer hurled a complete game in eight of his starts and struck out 92 batters in 81 innings pitched.


Carpenter is 7-2 with a 2.94 ERA in 12 postseason starts.  His only complete game in postseason was Game 5 of the NLDS against the Philadelphia Phillies.
