There is something about triple digits that capture the fancy of the numerologist in all baseball fans.
On Saturday night in Pittsburgh, the St. Louis Cardinals’ Albert Pujols drove in three runs with a bases-loaded double. In the process, he crossed the 100 RBI threshold for the ninth time in nine Major League seasons and extended his Major League lead in the important category.
As such, Pujols only trails Hall of Famer Stan Musial in years with 100 or more RBI as a Cardinal. “The Man” finished his illustrious career with ten such seasons, the most in team history.
At the age of 29, the opportunity may be ahead for Pujols to double that mark before his career concludes.
100 or more RBI seasons – Cardinals franchise history
With the three-RBI game Saturday, Pujols extended his franchise career lead over the last 55 years in such games to 115.
Three or more RBI games – Cardinals (1954-2009)
