Pujols Hits 2 Home Runs, Holliday Reaches 100 RBIs
PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Albert Pujols hit his 40th and 41st home runs and Matt Holliday reached the 100 RBI mark, leading the slumping St. Louis Cardinals to a 9-2 victory Thursday over the Pittsburgh Pirates.

The Cardinals snapped a three game losing streak and won for just the 13th time in 38 games since Aug. 14, the last day they were in first place in the NL Central.

St. Louis' chances of defending its division title remain slim. The Cardinals trail idle Cincinnati by 7{ games with only 10 games left.
