Jason Marquis pitched eight solid innings of work for the Cards winning his third game this season. Albert Pujols connected for his ninth home run this season. Jason Isringhausen picked up his fourth save despite giving up a hit.
Albert Pujols is now two hits away from 1,000 career hits and advances to 210 career home runs. Note to the Cardinals front office: Commission someone to make a Pujols statue as soon as possible. He's earned it.
