What a historic night for the great Albert Pujols! {6 AB, 4 R, 5 H, 6 RBI, 3 HR}

Pujols became the third player in World Series history to hit 3 home runs in one game. He joined Reggie Jackson (1977 World Series) and Babe Ruth (twice: 1926, 1928 World Series) in this rarest of clubs. In doing so, Pujols helped the Cardinals CRUSH the Rangers in Game 3 and shift the momentum back on their side. Wow!

No need to write much more. All we can say about Mr. Pujols' performance is, "Oh, what a night!"

But the Rangers ain't dead yet, unless of course, Mr. Pujols continues to show the world (and the media) why he's still the king.

Hit the music!
