Pujols extends Cards two-RBI game lead


Ho hum. With his two RBI each on Friday and Saturday against the Kansas City Royals, St. Louis Cardinals first baseman Albert Pujols extended his lead in the club’s list of two-or-more RBI games this decade to 285.

Pujols will soon pass the next two (former) Cardinals on the list as Jim Edmonds (175 games) and Scott Rolen (114 games) together accomplished the feat 289 times since the start of the 2000 season. Yadier Molina has the second-most such games of any active Cardinal at 54, one ahead of Ryan Ludwick.
