Pujols comes up huge Sunday

Cardinals legendary first baseman Albert Pujols had a 3-for-4 afternoon for the club.
In the bottom of the sixth inning, Pujols hit his fifth home run of the season and 684th of his career. The home run was knocked off Cristopher Sanchez on a fly to center field, traveling 409 feet at 105 mph.

In the second inning, Lars Nootbaar hit a single to left field to score Nolan Arenado. In the seventh, the score was tied up at 3 as Nolan Gorman grounded out to the first base to score Austin Romine.

In the eighth inning, Tommy Edman knocked a sacrifice fly to center field allowing Dylan Carlson to make a fantastic slide, avoiding a tag from JT Realmuto.

Carlson was originally called out but the Cardinals requested the play be reviewed which allowed a review that showed Carlson completely avoiding the tag and scoring the winning run.
