Busch Stadium: 10/7/06
Cardinals vs Padres

Chris Young was brilliant striking out 9 in 6 and 2/3 scoreless innings as the Padres defeated the Cardinals 3-1 in game 3 of their division series. Albert Pujols and Yadier Molina teamed up for 2 nice plays in the first inning – first Pujols gunned down Dave Roberts at the plate on an infield grounder, then Molina picked off Piazza at first to end the inning. So Taguchi solo-ed to lead off the 8th for the lone Cardinals run.
