Busch Stadium: 4/15/06
Cardinals vs Reds

Albert Pujols dominated this game with his bat (HR, 2B, 2 R, 2 RBIs) and his glove (2 spectacular line drive catches, including an unassisted DP), while Sidney Ponson got the win (just 2 runs on 5 hits in 6 and 1/3) in his Busch debut. Adam Dunn solo-ed in the top of the 1st but Yadier Molina’s 2-out bases loaded single in bottom half of the inning gave the Cards the lead for good.
