It didn’t work out so well for them yesterday, but the Cardinals have another early lead against the Brewers.
After Jon Jay reached on a bunt single with one out in the top of the first inning, Albert Pujols took right-hander Shaun Marcum deep for a two-run home run, giving the Cardinals an early 2-0 lead. It was a rocket over the left field fence.
As noted by Jayson Stark of ESPN.com, Pujols was homerless over his previous 47 at-bats in the postseason. His last postseason home run was off Justin Verlander in Game 1 of the 2006 World Series against the Tigers.
