The St. Louis Cardinals extended their lead 12-6 from an Albert Pujols three-run home run off of Alexi Ogando to put the Cardinals up 11-8.
Ogando also gave up another run when Yadir Molina hit a sacrifice and scored Matt Holliday. That ended the sixth inning and Albert Pujols came up big for the Cardinals again by hitting his second home run of the game. His latest home run was a two-run shot off of Mike Gonzalez to extend the Cardinals lead 14-6.
The Rangers are trying to make a comeback and cut the lead down from 14-6 to 14-7 on a Mike Napoli sacrifice that scored Adrian Beltre in the bottom of the eighth.
