Pujols, Cardinals push it back to Busch

Albert Pujols hit a gargantuan three-run homer to cap a ninth inning rally, giving the St. Louis Cardinals a 5-4 win tonight in Houston. The Astros were one out away from the World Series before Eckstein singled and Edmonds walked, leading to Pujols going yard off of Brad Lidge.

The series is still 3-2 in favor of Houston, but it was the same margin last year when the teams headed back to Busch Stadium, and the Cardinals took the final two to advance to the World Series.

This has become one of the best rivalries in baseball over the last two postseasons.
