Albert Pujols Make 1st Career Pitching 

Albert Pujols makes first pitching appearance of his career, closes out St. Louis Cardinals' rout of San Francisco Giants.

Albert Pujols had an absolute blast. And not at the plate this time, either.

The longtime slugger made his first career pitching appearance Sunday night, closing out a 15-6 blowout for the St. Louis Cardinals over the San Francisco Giants

that gave Adam Wainwright and Yadier Molina the major league record for wins by a starting battery.

Molina homered and drove in four runs, Wainwright pitched six effective innings and St. Louis roughed up Carlos Rodon early.

Paul Goldschmidt and Nolan Arenado each added a two-run homer for the Cardinals, who took two of three in the series after losing two of three to struggling Baltimore.
