ST. Krishawn Hogan Jersey . LOUIS -- The St. Louis Cardinals gave manager Mike Matheny a three-year contract extension through 2017 on Wednesday, rewarding him for deep post-season runs in his first two seasons in the job. The team also said that 2005 NL Cy Young Award winner Chris Carpenter is retiring after missing this season with a recurring nerve issue in his shoulder. Matheny led the Cardinals to the World Series this year, losing in six games to Boston. In 2012, his first season managing at any level, St. Louis fell one game shy of reaching the Fall Classic. The 43-year-old Matheny was a four-time Gold Glove catcher with St. Louis and had one year left on his deal. "We didnt want any distractions, we knew we wanted Mike to be a part of this organization for a long time," general manager John Mozeliak said Wednesday. "So we might as well deal with it and get it behind us. "Obviously, with the success hes had he deserves this contract," Mozeliak added. Chairman Bill DeWitt Jr. characterized Mathenys first two seasons as "pretty historic." Matheny called it an "amazing ride." Mathenys managed 30 post-season games the last two seasons and is among eight managers in major league history to lead a team to the post-season his first two full seasons. The Cardinals picked up Mathenys option for 2014 in February. "You look at how everythings kind of unfolded and you just never know," the manager added. "Opportunities come up and fortunately Ive been surrounded by some very, very good people." Mozeliak said the team hoped to "identify a future role" in the organization for the 38-year-old Carpenter. "When you think back to everything this organization has been through in regard to his ups and downs, he will still go down as one of the greatest weve ever had," Mozeliak said. Carpenter went 95-44 with a 3.07 ERA in nine seasons in St. Louis despite making only seven starts combined between 2007-08 and 2012. His began his career in 1997 with Toronto, signing with the Cardinals after the 2002 season. He missed all of 2003 with an injury and was 144-94 overall. "We think back to his career and what an amazing one it was," Mozeliak said. "He was part of so many highlights and I think he really created a culture of higher expectations." Carpenter won 21 games in 2005 and led the league in ERA in 2009, the same year he was named the NL comeback player of the year -- after having Tommy John surgery. Hes the franchise career leader with 10 postseason victories, the most memorable is his 1-0 win over the Phillies and Roy Halladay in Game 5 of the NL division series in 2011. "Chris will always be remembered as the leader of the pitching staff during one of the great eras of Cardinals baseball," DeWitt said. The Cardinals also purchased the contract of outfielders Oscar Taveras and Mike ONeill, and infielder Greg Garcia. St. Louis has 36 players on the 40-man roster. Taveras is the franchises top prospect and is coming off right ankle surgery after batting .306 in just 46 games at Triple-A Memphis. ONeill hit .320 in 98 games at Double-A Springfield and finished the year at Memphis where he batted .295, and the versatile Garcia batted .271 at Memphis and played second base, third base and shortstop. The Cardinals took left-hander John Gast, outfielder Jermaine Curtis and shortstop Ryan Jackson off the 40-man roster. Gast and Curtis were outrighted to Memphis and Jackson was claimed by the Houston Astros. Mozeliak called it a roster "clean up" prior to the winter Rule 5 draft. The team is seeking a replacement for Bengie Molina, an assistant hitting coach this year who last week was hired as the Texas Rangers first base coach and catching instructor.

Except for a 72-40 blowout loss to top-ranked Kentucky in the second game of the season, everything has gone as planned for Kansas, which currently enjoys a three-game win streak. The current run began with an 87-60 thrashing of Rider, continued with a 76-60 win over Rhode Island and was extended on Friday with an 82-67 triumph over Tennessee in the semifinals of this event. As for the Spartans, they are seeking an early-season championship for the second season in a row after capturing the Coaches vs. Cancer Classic last season. Outside of an 81-71 loss against Duke in the second game of the campaign, MSU is again off to a very strong start and is currently riding a four-game win streak.

The most recent victory came in the 2012 Champions Classic in Atlanta by a score of 67-64. Perry Ellis controlled the paint for the Jayhawks in the latest outing on Friday, producing a double-double which consisted of 24 points and 13 rebounds, both of which were game highs. So strong was the presence of Kansas State near the rim, the team ruled on the glass by a 44-22 margin and had almost as many offensive rebounds (18) as Tennessee had total.

As one of three players to have started all five games in the early going, Ellis leads the Jayhawks with both 15.0 ppg and 6.6 rpg, but really this is a team that is built on balance with only one other player (Alexander) scoring in double figures with his 10.4 ppg. Like Ellis, Alexander is also someone who works hard along the front line with his 5.6 rpg while shooting almost as well from the floor (.630) as he is at the free-throw line (.643). Key to the victory for MSU over Marquette was the fact that the Spartans connected on 63.6 percent from 3-point range in the second half and at the same time limited the Golden Eagles to just 33.3 percent. Denzel Valentine tallied a career-high 25 points for the Spartans as he knocked down six of his 10 chances on the perimeter, while Travis Trice tacked on 19 points and also found opportunities to deliver seven assists. Marvin Clark Jr. pitched in with another 10 points as the Spartans shot an impressive 57.8 percent from the floor and 12-of-23 (.522) beyond the arc. At the offensive end of the floor, Trice is pacing three players in double figures with his 16.8 ppg, shooting 43.6 percent on the outside and also coming up with 39 assists, against a mere eight turnovers.
