Carpenter nabs Cy Young honors
Ace joins Gibson as only Redbirds to win award

By Matthew Leach / MLB.com



ST. LOUIS -- When it mattered, Chris Carpenter was at his best.

Carpenter, who was unbeatable from early June until well into September, was named the National League's Cy Young Award winner on Thursday, giving the Cardinals their first Cy Young since 1970. The New Hampshire native edged out Florida's Dontrelle Willis in the closest vote since 1998.

Carpenter received 132 points in the 5-3-1 voting system used by the Baseball Writers Association of America. Out of 32 ballots, the right-hander received 19 first-place votes and 12 second-place mentions, with just one voter placing him third.
