Brett Tomko finally got a win at home and it was impressive. Tomko lasted eight innings, holding the Marlins to four hits, no runs, a walk and he recorded five strikeouts in a 3-0 victory. In the ten starts leading up to last night’s game, Tomko had a record of 0-4 at Busch Stadium. Last night’s performance upped his record to 8-7 overall and earned him a standing ovation from the 31,002 fans in attendance. Jason Isringhausen gave up a walk in the ninth inning but struck out two batters to get his ninth save of the season. At the plate, Albert Pujols got things going with an RBI double in the first inning to extend his hitting streak to 21 games. He also reached the100 RBI and 100 run plateau and joined Jose Canseco as the only other player in major league history to hit 30 home runs and drive in 100 runs in his first three seasons. The Cards trail the Astros by two games. The Cubs trail by a game and a half.
