2 out of 3 ain't bad

Albert Pujols continues to astound everyone. He's even left guys like Cards broadcaster Mike Shannon speechless, and tonight was no exception.
I tuned in the game on the way home from work just in time to hear Wayne Hagin call Albert's second homer of the night, giving him 41 on the year.
In case you're scoring at home, that dinger puts Pujols just ahead of Barry Bonds' amazing 40 homers in only 356 AB, despite being constantly forced to take his base.

Pujols for the moment now leads in 2 of the 3 Triple Crown catergories for the first time since before the All-Star Break.

Meanwhile tonight's 10-2 win against the Rockies and the Cubs' subsequent loss to the Expos in Puerto Rico leaving the Cards gaining a game on the Cubbies and a half game on the idle Astros.
