The St. Louis Cardinals win 16-7 over the Texas Rangers in Game 3 of the World Series.

Albert Pujols grabbed all of the attention, this time for a good reason, as he hits 3 home runs in the game, went 5-6, and had 6 RBI. He ties World Series records for hits, home runs, and RBI in a single game. He becomes the first NL player to hit 3 home runs in a single World Series game. He ties Reggie Jackson and Babe Ruth who each accomplished that feat. He ties the record for the most hits and RBI in a single World Series game as well.

As for the Texas Rangers, it all fell apart in the 4th inning. A disputed call at first base seemed to open the flood gates. Mike Napoli made a major throwing error that allowed two runs to score. Matt Harrison was later lifted in that inning and could not make it out of that inning. Harrison went 3 2/3 innings giving up 6 hits, 5 runs (3 earned), walking 1 and striking out 3. The Rangers’ bullpen simply didn’t have it at all as they gave up a total of 9 hits, 11 runs, 5 walks, and 4 strikeouts in 4 1/3 innings.

Kyle Lohse didn’t fair any better as he only went 3 innings giving up 5 hits and 3 runs. Yadier Molina had a great game behind Albert Pujols with 4 RBI and going 2-3. David Freese continued his postseason dominance going 2-4 with 2 RBI. Allen Craig smacked another home run going 1-5 in the game.

The Rangers and Cardinals play game 4 of the World Series Sunday night at 8:05PM.
