St. Louis Cardinals slugger Albert Pujols added to his legend tonight hitting three homeruns in Game 3 of the World Series.
It is the first time there’s been a three homerun game in the Fall Classic since Reggie Jackson did it with the New York Yankees in Game 6 of the 1977 World Series against the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Mr. October hit his three homeruns off three different pitchers - Burt Hooton, Elias Sosa and Charlie Hough. Pujols also hit his three homeruns off three different pitchers - Alexei Ogando, Mike Gonzalez and Darren Oliver.
Of course, the first player to hit three homeruns in a World Series game was none other than Babe Ruth and he did it twice, first in Game 4 of the 1926 World Series and in Game 4 of the 1928 World Series. Interestingly, Ruth did it on both occasions against the St. Louis Cardinals.
Pujols entered tonight’s game 0 for 6. Tonight, he went 5 for 6 with three homeruns and six RBI en route to a 16-7 drubbing of the Rangers. The Cardinals now take a 2-1 lead in the best of seven series.
Postscript: I should mention that I was on the phone with my Dad for a good chunk of the game. He called Pujols first two homeruns. So what about the third homerun? Dad went to bed after the seventh inning.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
