|Pujols Hits 3 HRs, Cards Romp To 2-1 Series Edge
|ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- Albert Pujols simply let his bat make all the noise. And boy, it was pretty loud.
Pujols hit three impressive home runs to tie the World Series record, amassing five hits and six RBIs Saturday night as the St. Louis Cardinals romped past the Texas Rangers 16-7 for a 2-1 edge.
The outburst by the three-time NL MVP came a day after he was barbed by the media for not sticking around to talk about a Game 2 error and loss. This time, everyone was talking about him.
