Notes: Tough game for the Big Puma. Hitting fifth for the Cardinals last Thursday, he basically had to follow a home run in three of his four at-bats. In both the first and third inning, Pujols homered two spots ahead of Berkman, while clean-up hitter Matt Holliday dropped a two-run bomb in the fifth. The Big Puma’s sombrero marked an 0-for-14 skid which he snapped in his first at-bat on Friday.
