Local players Carroll, Barrett shine against Cardinals

Jamey Carroll is a veteran infielder fighting for a spot on the Washington Nationals’ roster while Aaron Barrett has made a major league 40-man roster for the first time in his career.

Carroll, a Castle High School and University of Evansville graduate, and Barrett, a Central product, both helped their stock on Saturday as the Nats played the St. Louis Cardinals to a 4-4 tie in 10 innings in exhibition action at Jupiter, Fla.

Carroll delivered an RBI single and Barrett retired all four batters he faced in relief.
