Pujols Homers as Cards Beat Cubs
CHICAGO (AP) -- Albert Pujols hit his league-leading 42nd home run and the St. Louis Cardinals held off the Chicago Cubs 8-7 Sunday, preventing the NL Central from being clinched.

The first-place Cincinnati Reds needed a victory at San Diego and a loss by the Cardinals to win the division.

Pujols hit a three-run homer and Matt Pagnozzi had a two-run double as the Cardinals took an 8-0 lead in the fifth inning. The Cubs' rally fell short, and they finished 35-46 at Wrigley Field this season.
