The St. Louis Cardinals had fun taking on the San Francisco Giants. While ahead by a wide margin, the Cardinals served Albert Pujols.
On Sunday night, the St. Louis Cardinals took the opportunity to have some fun. While they were well ahead of the San Francisco Giants, the Cardinals decided to let Albert Pujols take the mound and threw a few pitches.
Now Pujols is universally known for hitting home runs and upsetting pitchers. He’s never had the opportunity to play in a Major League Baseball game.
That changed on Sunday.
While Pujols wasn’t particularly effective, he didn’t have to be. The Cardinals were so far ahead that there was never any real concern that St. Louis would stumble and lose to the Giants.
So, sure, have fun. Especially when your team is up 15-2 in a game.

And yes, Pujols got the opportunity to pitch. Sure, he succeeded. Technically, he joined some pretty exclusive clubs in the process.
But he sure wasn’t that good at it.
But hey, Pujols at least managed to entertain a few people while creating some memories for the likes of Evan Longoria.
Again, Pujols wasn’t great, far from it. But, well, he got three guys out. That’s technically all he had to do. And he did.
