A big night for Albert Pujols as he gets his 2000th hit and helps the Cardinals blow out the Chicago Cubs last night at Busch, 9-2. David Freese would blast a three run home run, and Ryan Theriot would drive in three runs.
Edwin Jackson, making his debut with St. Louis, would go seven innings to get the win.
Pujols is the 5th Cardinal to get two thousand hits, and the 263rd Major League Player to hit the milestone. Other Redbirds in this club are Stan Musial, Lou Brock, Rogers Hornsby, and Enos Slaughter.
Same two teams this afternoon as Kyle Lohse will start for St. Louis. Chicago will go with Rodrigo Lopez.
St. Louis Cardinals game time is 3:10.
