Before that, the Cards fans were all besides themselves, as a wild pitch in the previous inning had them down by two runs. They seemed sure they were about to lose their 9th consecutive game.
But then Pujols showed why he's the biggest man in baseball. On his second pitch, he hit a rocket to the second deck of left field.
The luxury suite was awesome... Redexim Charterhouse certainly has been showing us a good time. The seats were great, the weather perfect, and they even ordered up a Pujols homer to break an 8-game skid.
Tomorrow morning we have more sessions at Glen Echo. Then back on the road to Lawrence.
