Cardinals_vs_brewers_b4f0
Babe Ruth and Mr. October have some company in the annals of World Series history: Albert Pujols. The Cardinals slugger put on a show for the ages in Game 3 of the World Series, smashing three home runs with 6 RBIs to power St. Louis to an easy 16-7 victory over the Texas Rangers. Only Ruth, in 1926 and 1928, and Reggie Jackson, in 1977, have ever done that. The performance gives the Cardinals a 2-1 lead, and decisive momentum, heading into Game 4 Sunday night. Pujols said it is an honor to be named with Ruth and Jackson. “I just think God that I was able to come out today and help our club win, and hopefully I can do that again tomorrow," he said.Photo Credit: Getty Images
