Pujols Hits 3 HRs to Lead Rout of Rangers 16-7

Meh. Tack-on homers don’t thrill me (ducks Reggie barbarrage)

Albert Pujols joined Babe Ruth and Reggie Jackson as the only players to hit three home runs in a World Series game, tying records with five hits and six RBIs that led the Cardinals to a 16-7 rout of the Texas Rangers on Saturday night that gave St. Louis a 2-1 Series lead.

In Game 4 on Sunday night, Derek Holland pitches for the Rangers and Edwin Jackson starts for the Cardinals. Thirty-six of 54 teams that won Game 3 to take a 2-1 Series lead have gone on to the title, including 10 of the last 11.

A blown call by first base umpire Ron Kulpa and a throwing error by first baseman by Mike Napoli led to a four-run fourth inning that changed the game/

Pujols hit a long three-run homer that helped the Cardinals open a 12-6 lead over after six innings.

He added a two-run shot in the seventh and a solo one in the ninth.

SIr Jon Heyman on Twitter...

Albert is unreal. But this is not greatest WS performance ever. 3 HRs on 3 pitches in WS clincher. #reggie, #reggie, #reggie.

oh fer chrissakes. a minute ago, i typed 'i wish he had hit 4 just to shut up the idiots who talk about reggie' and killed it because i dint want to sound fanboyish. f u k jon heyman.

I might agree with Heyman, if you factor in wpa value or some other crap.

Talk to me when you hit 3 home runs in two different series like Babe Ruth did.

Heyman is right. Here is Jackson's pitch-by-pitch performance in Game Six:

Pitch 1: Ball
Pitch 2: Ball
Pitch 3: Ball
Pitch 4: Ball
Pitch 5: Home Run
Pitch 6: Home Run
Pitch 7: Home Run

Which takes nothing away from how great Pujols' performace was. But not every great performance we see has to be the greatest ever.

agree with post 6, I find it hard to call a performance with an out made, as best ever. Great of course, impressive, memorable, cementing of his legacy etc... but greatest ever needs to exhibit perfection, you can't make an out.

edit:unless you are talking about a defensive game like Brooks Robinson.
   9. Tulo's Fishy Mullet (mrams) Posted: October 23, 2011 at 05:03 AM (#3972178)
Not Pujols fault, but hammering a 3rd bomb when you're up a TD doesn't have the cache as 3 solo bombs in a 4-3 game.
   10. Guts Posted: October 23, 2011 at 05:06 AM (#3972179)
At this point, disappointed not to be up 3-0. But if you told me Wednesday Cards would have taken 2 of the first 3, would have been ecstatic. So I will take it.

Holland-Jackson tomorrow, should be a disaster game. Carp-CJ rematch Monday; Cards need to win that game. Hopefully Carp brings it again.

which is why I mentioned the wpa, it's a crappy stat, but for evaluating the value of a one game performance, it's a useful tool.

I watched this game at a bar that was wall to walk Cardinals fans. I've never seen a bar crowd like that for baseball game before. It was pretty awesome, especially since I hate the Rangers with every fiber of my being.

Cubs fans are going to love all those home runs next year.

From Matt leach,

Nobody had ever had 4 hits, 2 homers, and 5 RBIs in the same #WorldSeries game. Pujols had 5 hits, 3 homers and 6 RBIs. #StLCards

So, if the Cardinals go on to win the WS, where do you start the money conversation if you are Pujols' agent?

I was thinking about this the other night as it appeared the Cardinals were about to go up 2-0 in the series. If the Cardinals take it all, I can see them easing up on their pursuit to re-sign Albert. They'll make a bid for sure, but at that point, they'll have two championships from Albert's time in St. Louis. They obviously wouldn't come out and say this, since it's never good business to even imply that you aren't trying to build the best possible team that you can. But is there really the same pressure to re-sign Albert at the MONSTER money he will command if you've already probably have two rings from him, not to mention what will probably be his best years?

And if Kyle Lohse had started for his team in Arlington, no one would care.

Nah, I agree, that was still probably a much more awesome overall performance. but let us have the frigging moment.

Best World Series performance? I'd probably go with Don Larsen.

By a batter? Eh, depends on the mood I'm in - both Pujols and Reggie have pretty damn good cases right about now.

I agree that we shouldn't be talking about Reggie Jackson tonight. He didn't do anything tonight.

Pujols' first home run was seriously a monster. If he hadn't hit two more, we'd still be talking about just that.

I think so, yes. I think it makes him even more of a legend/icon/cornerstone than ever, and I think the St.Louis media and fanbase freak if he leaves--particularly, of course, if he goes to the Cubs.

But that is only an off-the-cuff opinion of a mostly neutral observer, and the St.Louis fans here may agree with you.

As a Cincinnati fan, I would like to get him out of the division. As a baseball media rubbernecker, I would like to see him in Cubs' blue on Opening Day 2012.

At this point, as Pujol's legend and pricetag both expand to the loftiest of heights, the question becomes, not can the Cards resign him, but should they. Is Pujols more valuable to the Cards if he wrecks the Cubs payroll instead?
   24. LionoftheSenate Posted: October 23, 2011 at 06:54 AM (#3972206)
Factor in the pissing contest between the sports media slobs, and Albert delivered this utter beat down today, (at least in my mind) to the fat slugs with free polo shirts and chicken fingers sitting next to their laptops, with malice.

The best cure to big market, big money teams is big bad contracts. They are your friend. Let Pujols walk to the Cubs.

The decision to re-sign Pujols has little to do with rings or maximizing team quality over that time. If it was just all about winning, there would be other options that are more likely to pay off.

The Cards want/need to keep Pujols to create another Musial. Stan Musial has been a legend in STL for generations of fans. The Cards have built this fanbase that feeds from generation to generation, thanks to all of those championships and all of those great players, and having guys like Gibson and Musial come back every year to be a part of that Cardinal legend.

A true franchise legend is impossible to just manufacture; they come around rarely, and have terrific tangible marketing benefits, and even more intangible benefits to the fanbase and the franchise's legitimacy. (Think of Gwynn to the Padres, Mays and McCovey and the rest to the Giants, and all of the legends that the Dodgers, Yankees, Sox, etc. have).

Pujols could wind up even better than Musial (even if he doesn't, he could still turn out as the best of his generation because his competition like Bonds and ARod are discounted as juicers, while Pujols may be clean; Musial wasn't as good as Mantle or Williams or Mays, and was still a legend).
   27. Harold can be a fun sponge Posted: October 23, 2011 at 07:23 AM (#3972212)
IIRC, DCW3 made an argument in the lounge within the last year, saying explicitly that as a Cardinal fan, that he'd rather keep Albert and have a much worse team over the next ten years, than let him go and make a bunch of post-season runs.

He said that he'd rather have an all-time great like Albert play his whole career for the Cards (be another Musial), with the one championship they've got, and suck for the next ten years, than let him go and win another championship or two while Albert spends half his career elsewhere.

I totally get this. As a Padre fan, I am still upset about losing Jake Peavy and Adrian Gonzalez.

While I do concur that nights like last night marginally increase the value of his contract (just as him missing his 100 RBI .300 BA benchmarks marginally decreased it), ultimately this all boils down to whether or not Pujols will take a ~100% raise (~200M/7) to stay with his friends/comrades, or leave them (and 'father figure' TLR) behind in order to maximize his salary in a bigger market.

It's a test of character, and I can live with the outcome either way.

The point is that Pujols hit three home runs in six plate appearances -- and on the first three, he made an out and singled twice. He hit three home runs because the rest of his team beat the crap out of Rangers pitching, too, giving him six PAs. An amazing, historic game, but not perfect.

Jackson had four PAs. He was walked on four pitches in the first one, and then homered on the next three pitches he saw. There was pretty much nothing he could do to have a better game, it was about as close to offensive perfection as you can get.

Pujols is a better player than Jackson was. Pujols added more runs to the scoreboard last night than Jackson did in 1977, because he had more opportunities. But Jackson's individual performance that one night was better.

Now let's shut up about Reggie.
   39. musial6 Posted: October 23, 2011 at 04:03 PM (#3972326)
It wasn't the best WS performance ever, nor was it Pujols' best game.

Just factoids (I have no intention of wading into the debate over whether Albert or Reggie's performance was better);

As the article notes, Albert's 14 total bases are the most ever in a World Series game. It also ties Bob Robertson in the '71 NLCS (three homers, one double) for the most ever in a postseason game. But in addition: nobody else in 2011 had fourteen total bases in a game--not even in the regular season. The last guy to have fourteen (or more0 total bases in a game was Dustin Pedroia in 2010; he's the only other guy to do it in the last three years. Before that it was Kelly Shoppach in 2008; before that was Alfonso Soriano in 2006, the last NL player to do it. It's still not a career high for Albert, though: as #39 notes, against the Cubs in 2004, he had a 15-TB game.

So, yeah, a pretty decent performance.
   43. BDC Posted: October 23, 2011 at 04:44 PM (#3972347)
When Nelson Cruz was in the spotlight early last night, a FOX graphic showed something like "13 HR: franchise postseason record." I thought to myself, no ####; I wonder aside from the Yankees how many other franchises have ever had a guy hit 13 postseason home runs. Come to find that Pujols was one, and increased his total considerably last night. Other than Texas, franchises with postseason 13-HR guys are the Yankees (many); Cleveland (Manny 13, Thome 17); Atlanta (Chipper); and St. Louis (Albert 18, Edmonds 13).

Edit: Oh I guess I can stop being lazy and name the 13-HR Yankees: Bernie (22), Jeter (20), Mantle (18), and Ruth (15). Is four "many," I dunno :)

   45. Steve Balboni's Personal Trainer Posted: October 23, 2011 at 05:07 PM (#3972360)
There have been 620 World Series games, and this is - at a minimum - one of the top handful of individual performances in WS history. I think the Reggie game is better, though. Consider:

1) It's a game 6, where if the Yankees win, they are the champions. If they lose, we're going to a single-elimination game. Remember, they got swept in 1976, and hadn't been to the WS since '64 - a lifetime for the franchise. This was a REALLY BIG deal - far bigger than a Cardinals/Rangers Game 3.
2) The Dodgers were up 2-0 when Reggie walked to lead off the 2nd inning. Then, Chambliss hit a two-run HR to tie the game.
3) When Reggie hit HR #1, in the bottom of the 4th, the Dodgers were again leading, 3-2. Munson hit a leadoff single, then Reggie gave the Yankees the lead with a two-run bomb.
4) In the bottom of the 5th, with Randolph on first and two outs, and the score 5-3 Yankees, Jackson hits a bomb.
5) In the bottom of the 8th, Yankees up 7-3, Reggie leads off, and goes yard.
6) He hit the three HRs on the first pitch against three different pitchers - and one of them was Charlie Hough. This is friggin' hard.

It turns out that the final HR mattered a little - the Dodgers scored in the ninth, had two more runners on with Lee Lacy hitting, and one of their outs was a deep fly ball. People forget in that game that the Dodgers kept it interesting in the 9th. Reggie was giving them the lead AND the insurance.

Also, look at what Reggie does when he hits HR #3. I know this shouldn't count, but is there anybody in the last 40 years who could do what he did, the WAY he did it? On the biggest stage, in the biggest game, jack the final HR in the bottom of the 8th, and immediately know he did it?

Last night's performance was amazing, one of the best ever. But the dramatic advantages, and the importance of both the game and the runs scored by Jackson, are much bigger for Jackson than Pujols.

Babe tidbits: Ruth only hit 3 homers in a game four times. The first two were in the World Series. The last was his final homer game in Pittsburgh. The third was in 1930, two were off George Earnshaw and one off Lefty Grove.

Jeter with 20 post-season HR? Wow, I still did not realize how much PT he'd gotten

Albert Pujols: as many RBI (9) in the recent NLCS as Jeter had in ALL 38 of his WS games. And Pujols may do better than 9 in this WS.
