Pujols homers twice, the Cards salvage one in Pittsburgh

Sep 23, 2010, 5:00 PM EDT

Albert Pujols went 3-for-4 with two homers today, as the Cardinals beat the Pirates 9-2.

The win prevents a sweep at the hand of the mighty Pirates. The homers put Pujols above 40 for the season. It’s the sixth time he’s done that in his career.  In case you were unaware, the man is pretty good at baseball.

Also of milestone importance was Matt Holliday driving in a run to put him at an even 100 for the season. The Cards may have sunk like a stone in September, but Holliday is putting together his best month of the season.  Overall he’s at .315/.388/.542 with 27 homers to go with those 100 RBI.

I’m not sure who is most responsible for the Cardinals bad ending, but you can’t say that Pujols and Holliday have poopy in their pants

    The Cardinals have folded up like an old pup tent. They have been playing alot like the Cubs and as a life long Cardinals fan, that sure hurts me to say that.

    Rasmus leads all CF in MLB in OBP, in SLG, and in OPS by 39 pts. I can see why LaRussa jerked around his playing time throughout the year and pinch hit for him regularly late in games.

    Maybe Tony needs some Depends.

    The Cardinals are 9-17 since August 28, when Pujols and LaRussa visited Glenn Beck in DC.
    Coincidence? I think not.
