Brewers vs. Cardinals: Albert Pujols Strikes Again, St. Louis Up 7-2

In the bottom of the fifth, Rickie Weeks got the Milwaukee fans excited with a two-run homer that finally got the Brewers on the board. Sure, the Brewers still trailed the Cardinals 5-2, but baseball! Hope! and Faith!

Except the Cardinals have this guy who puts a bad hurt on the baseball every time he comes up. Tonight, anyway.

In the first inning, Jon Jay singled and Albert Pujols homered.

In the third inning, Edwin Jackson and Jon Jay singled and Albert Pujols doubled.

In the fifth inning, Jon Jay doubled and Albert Pujols doubled.

That made the score 6-2, and Pujols made it 7-2 moments later when, always on the lookout for an opportunity to swipe an extra base, scored from third when reliever Marco Estrada buried a pitch in the dirt.

Hey, Pujols doesn't do everything. In the fourth, Nick Punto chipped in with an RBI single.

Let's be honest about this, though ... Tonight it looks like Albert Pujols is better, all by himself, than the 25 guys wearing Brewers uniforms.
