Pujols Punishes Astros, Again

By  | 

HOUSTON (AP) - Albert Pujols hit a two-run homer to snap out of
a 1-for-17 slump as the St. Louis Cardinals hammered the Houston
Astros 10-to-1.
Scott Rolen had a three-run double and Yadier Molina added a two-run double in the ninth inning off Astros closer Brad Lidge.
Houston native Kip Wells allowed just one hit over seven innings
and improved to 1-and-1. He struck out seven and retired the last
16 batters he faced.
Jason Jennings is 0-and-1 after giving up five hits including
Pujols' homer.
The Astros are 1-and-5, matching their worst start since 1990.
