Albert Pujols drove in two runs and made it into the history books as the Cardinals beat the Pirates 4-0 in Pittsburgh Sunday. Pujols now has 100 RBI’s and joins Al Simmons, Ted Williams and Joe DiMaggio as the only players in Major league history to drive in at least a hundred in their first four seasons. Pujols also hit his 40th home run yesterday as the Cards swept the three-game series with the Pirates. Scott Rolen and Mike Matheny also drove in runs. Rolen has 112 RBI’s, which leads the National League and is third overall in the majors. Cardinals starting pitcher Jason Marquis lasted 7 1/3 innings to earn his 13th win of the season. Marquis, Ray King and Julian Tavarez combined for a four-hit shut out, with Tavarez getting his fourth save. The Cardinals have a 15-game lead in the National League Central.
