Carl Winter hit 2-for-3, including a two-run single in the sixth inning, and Jon Teeter also delivered two hits for the Cardinals.
Levi Diaz pitched the seven-inning distance for the Cardinals, allowing 12 hits.
Carson was aided by the defensive play of Ryan Gonzales, who caught a half dozen fly balls in center field.
The Cardinals won three straight games to reach the tournament's final four.
