Former TCU star Matt Carpenter had a monster July at the plate for the St. Louis Cardinals.

He clubbed 11 homers during the month, which was the most in all of baseball. He now has 26 homeruns this season, which trails Nolan Arenado of the Rockies (28) for the most long balls in the majors.

On Thursday, the former TCU star was given his first National League Player-of-the-Month award.

Beer started flowing at TCU's Lupton Stadium Wednesday night during a game against Dallas Baptist. Among the beer available on tap: Bud Light, Miller Light, Michelob Ultra, Coors Light and multiple craft beer options.
